Zippe will deliver a post-consumer glass recycling plant for STES Vladimir’s foam glass factory, located in Russia.
The delivered post-consumer glass will be treated so that clean and finely milled glass particles are available.
After plant completion, 150,000m3 of high quality glass foam will be produced from 30,000 tons of glass cullet.
From this, approximately 110,000m3 of moulded glass foam components will be manufactured.
Foam glass is a heat insulating material made up of foamed recycling glass.
This insulating material is used for building construction and civil engineering and for coating of gas and oil pipelines.
At the headquarters of Zippe in Germany, 29 trucks were loaded within three weeks, to transport the entire equipment 2,550km away to Vladimir, located 190km east of Moscow.
