The new plant uses a  high-resolution camera system able to recognise a wider glass and bottle colour spectrum, this enables the separation of waste glass remains according to colour, thereby speeding up the recycling process compared separating different colour glass waste by hand.

The plant is also able to separate waste glass from other material as well as clean the sorted waste glass and deliver material that is ready in the manufacture of new glass products.  Covering 3,500m², the facility has a production capacity of 24 tons per hour upgradable to 36 tons per hour.
