Investing in Recycling Technology for the Container Glass Market

During 2009, and again in 2011, Isis Environmental was asked to look at specific technology for crushing glass bottles.  The major problem with recycling glass containers is that they take up a large volume in any commercial waste stream, mainly comprising air spaces.

We examined the UK and EU trends and macro-economic background to the container-glass recycling industry, the value of the mixed and separated cullet and key influences on spot prices, including PRN values.

We then carried out in depth analysis of the commercial viability of a range of crushing technologies currently in the market and assisted our Client with their medium to long term investment planning and assessed the potential market size for the various products.
