Reiling: new Osterweddingen glass recycling plant fully operational

At Reiling‘s location in Osterweddingen, Germany, the newly built glass recycling plant was commissioned in February and has successfully completed its first few weeks of operation.

By continuously investing in innovative recycling technologies and plant construction, Reiling is able to go even deeper into value creation and meet the increasing requirements of industries such as bottle glass, flat glass and insulating wool.

The additional recycling plant will further process the rejects and fine-grain cullet as well as the poor-quality incoming cullet produced in the current plants. The innovative technology allows for sorting of heavily contaminated cullet and cullet in the fine-grain range.

For this purpose, the input material is pre-dried in a drum dryer and then processed in various sorting machines so that CSP, glass ceramics, lead glasses, FE and NE metals, organic materials such as foils and labels, but also larger plastic particles are discharged. In addition, colour sorting is also possible.

Due to the significant improvement in the quality of the processed cullet, the glass recycled can be returned to high-quality melting applications and remains in the material cycle.
