Glass bottle crushing technology
- The plant employs the patented Australian glass bottle crushing system Implosion System, whose crushing technology Krysteline has patent registration in the U.K. The Implosion System generates a shock wave that will fragment glass bottles to pieces of required sizes.
- Eco-friendly feature - Noise reduction: Compared with glass crushers that rely on mechanical fracturing, the Implosion System results in much less noise, reducing noise nuisance to the environment.
Collection bin washing zone
- To ensure the cleanliness and hygiene of glass bottle collection bins, the plant has a collection bin washing zone where up to 100 glass bottle collection bins can be cleansed per hour.
- Eco-friendly features – waste water reduction and water saving:The plant is specially installed with the 3D bio-filtration for grey water treatment system, through which 90% of the waste water from collection bin washing can be treated and will become reusable. The system can process up to 1,200 L waste water daily, resulting in less waste water produced and water saving benefits.
