Piramal Glass enhanced its ‘Cullet-Sorting’ capabilities for ‘Cullet Treatment’ at its Jambusar (Gujarat) facility by installing a fully-automatic equipment known as ‘Clarity (Optical Camera based)’ manufactured by Binder Austria. A ‘cullet’ is broken or waste glass used in glass-making.
As a practice, glass bottle manufacturers add some percentage of cullet in their raw-material due to its benefits of reduced energy consumption. Cullet sourced from the open markets has various kinds of impurities like stones, paper, plastic, porcelain, metal, and ceramics. To overcome this problem, Piramal Glass’s Jambusar team conducted a detailed study and successfully installed this equipment- which is the first of its kind in India.
