Ardagh: roofing cullet for energy savings

Ardagh glass production facility in Dongen drops energy use by approximately 10,000 GJ

Ardagh Group team in Dongen, the Netherlands, has installed roofing over a part of the green cullet area to limit its exposure to weather conditions such as rain and snow.

The roofing resulted in energy reductions of approximately 10,000 GJ per year due to less energy needed to heat the cullet, thanks to water previously mixed with the cullet no longer being present. The new roofing also leads to less organic waste in our waste water system.
