At the beginning of 2021 container glass manufacturer Verallia celebrated the inauguration of its eleventh production furnace and demonstrated its intention to continue investing in Italy, strengthening the Villa Poma facility.
ZIPPE Industrieanlagen GmbH was selected to make a major contribution to this extensive project by designing and realizing the complete batch & cullet system for this new furnace.
It is the second furnace modernisation at the Villa Poma site since 2019. Verallia has invested 60 million EUR into this project, this investment comprises most modern production and environmental technologies.
The plant went into operation successfully in March. Towards the middle of the year, the batch plant will be extended by two sand silos, for which ZIPPE will supply the dosing and weighing equipment.
