Furthermore, two cullet return systems are planned for the scope of supply. They will be equipped with Zippe’s proven scraping and crushing technology.

The project is intended to be conducted on a turnkey basis. The scope of supply will comprise the steel and silo construction, equipment and the control system. Zippe will also be responsible for the local services, such as installation, piping, cabling and commissioning, as well as training of the customer’s personnel.
