IIT: low energy grinding technology converts glass waste into a commercial product

  Cullet treatment

IIT’s short video shows how its milling systems are being successfully utilised in glass recycling operations where material previously regarded as waste is now being used in commercial applications and generating new revenue streams.

IIT has produced a new film to demonstrate the feasibility and cost effective conversion of waste glass into powder products
International Innovative Technologies Ltd (IIT), the specialist milling technology company, has produced a new film to demonstrate the feasibility and cost effective conversion of waste glass into powder products for use in a wide range of recycling and industrial applications.
IIT’s short video, Turning Glass Into High Value Powders, shows how its milling systems are being successfully utilised in glass recycling operations where material previously regarded as waste is now being used in commercial applications and generating new revenue streams.
As well as the conventional reduction of glass waste into cullet for re-use in the glass production process, it has long been recognised that powdered glass has a range of potential useful applications.
These include its use as a filler in paints and plastics, for landscaping purposes, as a fluxing agent in bricks and ceramics, in shot blasting and abrasive products, as an insulation material in the construction industry and as a filtration aid in water treatment.
Historically the unfavourable economics associated with the effective fine milling of waste glass in conventional grinding systems has largely ruled out these potential applications, but the availability of low energy fine grinding systems is now overcoming this problem.
The majority of traditional grinding processes are air swept systems in which the feed materials are introduced into the grinding chamber in a stream of air. These types of mills require significant power t...
