THE INNOVATIVE GLASS WORKS PLAN
Last January, Éco Entreprises Québec (ÉEQ) launched the Innovative Glass Works Plan, a concrete solution for recycling 100% of glass in Quebec.
Thanks to its Innovative Glass Works Plan, Éco Entreprises Québec (ÉEQ) is introducing a concrete solution to recycle 100% of glass in Quebec. A total of $6.7 million will be invested in the first three parts of the plan to modernize sorting centres and support the development of new market outlets for recycled glass.
Following a rigorous two-year initiative and the input of external experts, ÉEQ established a strategic Quebec-Great Britain partnership between equipment manufacturer Machinex and Krysteline Technologies to make the Innovative Glass Works Plan a reality. The field demonstration segment launched last January drew the interest of 80% of sorting centres. The second part consisting in financial support for the marketing of new applications for recovered glass will begin on March 15, 2016.
