With Sasil and Sacmi Team waste is turned into raw materials

Excellent results achieved in the recycling of glass industry waste

A successful experiment conducted by Sasil SpA, based in Brusnengo (Biella, Italy), in association with Sacmi Team, has led to the publication of an article in Glass Worldwide, the leading, most-read magazine on the glass industry and all its related technology.

This Biella-based company – which produces feldspathic and silica sands for the glass and ceramic industry – has, in fact, successfully completed experimentation of an innovative, self-developed process aimed at recovering waste from glass fibre manufacturing firms. It is a project in which Sasil has been joined by Sacmi Team, the division that, since 2007, has brought together all the Sacmi Group’s best machine design and development skills for the technical ceramic industry.

More specifically, the specialists of Sacmi Forni and Riedhammer, coordinated by Sacmi Imola, have designed a neutralization kiln that heat-treats such waste to give a product that is fully re-utilisable as a raw material (something that was, until now, unattainable owing to the materials’ characteristics). This important achievement – presented by Sasil with a report by Dr. Piero Ercole at the recent EHEDG congress (Parma, October 2014) - subsequently attracted the attention of the prestigious Glass Worldwide magazine; the results of the pilot project were published in the March/April 2015 issue.
