Glass processing plant built in Southern Russia

Input material for Actis glass recycling facility in Novocherkassk, Russia.

Actis, located in Novocherkassk, only 30 kilometers from Rostov in Southern Russia, produces new bottles for the beverage industry from waste glass collected.

After a careful planning phase, Actis chose the Austrian construction company BT-Wolfgang Binder with their Redwave sorting technology, who carried out the conception and realization of the automatic sorting plant for raw material recycling of waste glass. In addition to the Redwave glass sorting machines, the scope of delivery also included metal separators, screening machines, crusher, an extraction system, as well as the associated conveying technology. The complete equipment was integrated in the existing building.

The integrated Redwave sorting machines play a significant part in the recycling of high-quality white glass, brown glass or mixed glass with no impurities. The first sorting stage is formed by Redwave 1300 C machines arranged in parallel for recovery of white glass or brown glass, as well for the separation of impurities. These sorting machines, in the three-way design, can realize both functions in a single sorting stage. In the second sorting stage, Redwave CS 1500 machines are utilized for the improvement in color and separation of impurities.
