Ardagh Glass – Europe creates new cullet recycling facility in Leeseringen
In May 2020, in partnership with German recycling company Remondis, we created a new, state of the art cullet recycling facility called Leeseringen, in Nienburg, Germany.
The new facility has photo-optics sorting equipment and X-ray fluorescence technology, allowing maximum recovery of quality cullet while reducing emissions and energy consumption; and a range of energy saving components that provide quality, furnace-ready cullet for our AGP facility in Nienburg.
Our commitment to investing in the latest recycling technology allows us to reduce emissions and still produce the highest quality cullet – something that has already been proven in our Vetreco glass recycling facility in Italy, here. It also means that Leeseringen is now one of the most modern glass recycling facilities in Europe. For more on this and the many known environmental benefits of using cullet, read our full 2021 Sustainability Report here.
