Zippe Industrieanlagen has successfully installed a batch plant for a 560tpd furnace at Mexico’s Industria Vidreria de Coahuila (IVC).
German company Zippe implemented the project on a turnkey-basis and its scope of supply includes two cullet return systems for the new melting furnaces, F3 and F4.
IVC is a joint venture of US-based glass manufacturer Owens-Illinois (O-I) and the brewer, Constellation Brands.
The new building site is in the city of Nava, north Mexico, 30km from the Texan border in the USA. The plant will manufacture bottles exclusively for a directly adjacent brewery.
