The French government authorities needed to solve the problem of waste glass bottles in remote territories, such as the island of Réunion in the Indian Ocean. They required a glass crushing machine that could be transported the same way as containers. Furthermore, for the purpose of transport by sea the device had to fit into shipping containers. The purpose of the machine was to reduce the volume of glass waste, especially bottles, which would also reduce the costs of transport during disposal or use in production.
As a result of rigorous design, we managed to produce an automatic line and reduce the size of the line’s devices from three to two shipping containers. That allows not only transport by sea in two 20-foot shipping containers but also transport on land using a single container carrier with a trailer. After being transported to the required place, the glass bottles crushing line with crushed output material in three fractions with pre-defined parameters.
