Glass recycling makes a relevant contribution to climate protection because waste glass requires far lower temperatures for melting and recycling than the processing of primary raw materials. This saves energy and leads to a reduction of harmful climate emissions. Moreover, if properly processed, old glass can be melted and reused for new products an infinite number of times. An appropriate processing of old glass is prerequisite for this. The robust product portfolio of IFE Material Handling is especially designed for the high wear requirements in this branch and has already proven its reliability in numerous glass recycling companies.
On the one hand, IFE equipment is used to separate metallic components in order to market them as ferromagnetic fractions and as non-ferrous mix. On the other hand, IFE machines are used to increase the quality of the glass fraction before it is handed over to optical sorting machines.
Which components from the IFE vibrating and magnetic technology portfolio will come into use (partly batch wise) depends on the input quality of the waste glass.
