Wiegand-Glas is one of the leading container glass manufacturers in Germany producing more than eight million glass containers daily in its four plants for the beverage and food industry. Here the executive management sets on tradition and modern technology at the same time and also considers sustainability as an important component of its business policy.
For Wiegand-Glas in Steinbach am Wald (Bavaria), the batch house which ZIPPE delivered was put into operation just recently. Now also the recyclable material silo was fully commissioned.
This project is an outstanding example for the further use and treatment of created “waste material“ which arises during glass manufacturing or respectively of its recycling.
In the Wiegand- Glas recycling plants, created glass dusts are collected and transported by the corresponding pneumatic transport system into the according storage silos. Consequently these dusts are loaded on trucks by loading equipment and a large platform scale and are then delivered to the customer for further processing (for example the construction sector).
Here we are dealing with an extraordinary plant of its kind. ZIPPE Industrieanlagen GmbH designed, planned, and constructed it -especially custom fit to the requirements of Wiegand-Glas Steinbach am Wald.
