Redwave sorting system for Russia – Company ACTIS built a new glass processing plant in Novocheskassk


The headquarters of the company Actis, which produces new bottles for the drinks industry from waste glass collected, is located in Novocherkassk, only 30 kilometres from the beautiful and traditional town of Rostov in Southern Russia.

The interest in fully automatic, optical sorting was inspired by Actis in 2008. After a careful planning phase, in 2011 Actis decided for the Austrian plant construction company BT-Wolfgang Binder with their REDWAVE sorting technology, who carried out the conception and realization of the automatic sorting plant for raw material recycling of waste glass. In addition to the REDWAVE glass sorting machines, the scope of delivery also included metal separators, screening machines, crusher, an extraction system, as well as the associated conveying technology. The complete equipment was integrated in the existing building.

Mr. V. Baziyan, General Director of Actis: 'The work that BT-Wolfgang Binder has made for us was very complicated. The entire new equipment had to be integrated into the existing system. I am very satisfied with the result and highly recommend to all interested parties and specialists from the industry to visit our facility where you can personally see the quality of the supplied equipment and its benefits.'

The integrated REDWAVE sorting machines play a significant part in the recycling of high-quality white glass, brown glass or mixed glass with no impurities (KSP separation). The first sorting stage is formed by REDWAVE 1300 C machines arranged in parallel for recovery of white glass or brown glass, as well for the separation of impurities. These sorting machines, in the 3-way design, can realize both functions in a single sorting stage. In the second sorting stage, REDWAVE CS 1500 machines are utilized for the improvement in colour and separation of impurities. These REDWAVE CS sorting machines can be utilized very flexibly primarily due to the modular construction, therefore are very reasonably priced and provide high-quality sorting.

Due to the implementation of the new sorting plant, the discharge rate could be increased to 33 to/ hr. That not only contributes to saving energy and raw materials in the production of glass: the daily requirement 600 to of waste glass has created new jobs in the region and reduced the quantity of waste, which would have ended at the dis¬posal site.

The manager of the plant planning at BT-Wolfgang Binder, E. Schaller, says: „To realize an economic combination of old and new for the customer and to include the existing equipment usefully in the new plant, was the challenge with the planning of this plant. We are very proud that the plant could be transferred immediately after commissioning, with all the conditions contractually agreed.“

NOTICE: on 26th September 2013 the „Glass Recycling Day 2013“ will take place at BT-Wolfgang Binder in Gleisdorf (Austria). This event will be focused on the “fine glass processing” and latest innovations in the glass recycling. Details and program:
