Verallia and TM Alcudia Reciclatges invest in a new calcine plant

March 25th 2019

Veralia has joined TM Alcudia Recycling to build a glass recycling plant in the province of Guadalajara. The recycled glass boiler or shell is necessary for the production of glass containers, since, in addition to contributing positively to the environment, it reduces the consumption of raw materials and energy.
Both companies will invest seven million euros in this new glass recycling plant that will directly employ 14 people. The new company, Calcín Ibérico SL, will have the most modern technology and will have a high capacity for waste treatment. In addition, it will be strategically located in Guadalajara to treat the glass waste generated in the neighboring Community of Madrid.
This is the second calcine plant in which Verallia Spain invests, after having recently started up the Recicladora de Vidrio de Canarias, SL plant
In the last 40 years, the European glass industry has reduced CO70 emissions to the atmosphere by 2%, partly thanks to the use of calcine, according to the Circular Economy report carried out by Ernst & Young for FEVE. This report also describes that using one ton of recycled glass avoids the extraction of 1,2 tons of raw material and eliminates 60% of CO2 emissions.
