Production efficiency is maximised by detection cameras which constantly monitor the flow of materials across the plant’s three production lines, ensuring that each line always runs at full capacity. No water is used at any stage of the recycling process, and waste glass arriving at the site is immediately placed under cover to minimise the need for drying.
All waste glass arriving at San Cesario is sourced in Italy, and all recycled glass (cullet) produced for the container glass industry is used by local manufacturers. The combination of technologies employed at the plant allows our team to really maximise production yields and minimise waste.
With a lower melting point than primary raw materials, cullet enables container glass manufacturers to reduce energy costs and CO2 emissions, as well as diverting waste glass from landfill. Glass recycling makes perfect environmental and economic sense, and San Cesario is making the equation even stronger.
