Glass recycling

Glass cullets are a unique resource.
We process it.

The utilization of waste glass cullets for the production of new glass is motivated by environmental, economic, as well as energy and resource-saving considerations. The treatment facilities are primarily required to deliver the highest quality end product while minimizing glass loss.

The objective is to produce glass cullets product that is efficiently sorted by color, removing both transparent impurities such as plastic films, glass ceramics, and lead glass, as well as non-transparent impurities like metals, ceramics, stones, or porcelain.



+ Production of high-quality glass recycling products

for furnace ready cullets

+ Impurities matter separation

CSP (ceramics, stones, porcelain), glass ceramics, lead glass, organic impurities, plastics, metals

+ Colour sorting

+ Recovery of recyclable glass from other waste streams like compost, C & D and IBA

Complete plants for waste glass recycling

World-leading plant competence in cullet processing

With our wide-ranging product portfolio, we offer our customers optimal processing of their cullets - especially with regard to the overall concept and turnkey plants. We accompany you right from the start: From the development and planning, production, assembly and commissioning of the plant, right through to ongoing service.

Complete Binder+Co waste glass processing plants are in operation in North and South America, Europe, Africa and Asia as well as in Australia, for producing the highest cullet quality.

Protecting the environment

We want to leave our children a planet worth living on. Our aim is to reduce waste as much as possible. So that we can reduce the amount of waste and reduce the amount of waste and natural resources at the same time. But also with our processing plants, we want to ensure the longest long and energy-saving operation as possible.


We always have an open ear for our customers. Only in this way can we recognise the emerging needs of the market and respond with innovative solutions.

The needs of our customers have led to the development of the first three-way system for the separation of foreign substances and simultaneous sorting by colour, as well as the system for the separation of glass-like impurities such as glass ceramics or lead glass.

The latest generation of CLARITY can sort glass from a size of 1 mm and remove all types of impurities such as metals, ceramics, stones, porcelain, glass ceramics, lead glass and plastics.

With the machine portfolio of the Binder+Co Group, we cover the essential process steps in the processing of waste glass cullet - from crushing, screening, drying and sensorbased sorting. Thus we can offer you customised solutions for turning the glass waste into the valuable glass cullets.

As close to the customer as possible

With our wide-ranging product portfolio, we offer our customers optimum processing of their product – not only with stand-alone systems but also complete concepts and turn-key plants. Only the optimum plant concept leads to securing an economic and technological advantage for our customers.
For the best possible fulfillment of specific customer requirements, we provide our customers with a comprehensive testing facility which can carry out systematic test processes tailored to the task in hand.
