GuiLin Mining Machinery Co., Ltd Glass crushers are machines designed with the aim of pulverizing glass to aid in the recycling process. Waste glass comes from various sources, in the form of glass sheets, containers, jars and bottles. They can be recycled with the help of a glass crusher to avoid generating new glass, which in turn saves energy.
Glass crushers come in a range of sizes and can be used independently by bar, hotel and restaurant owners alike, or as a part of an integrated glass recycling system, comprising of crushers and material separation machines. Glass crushers have a mechanical safety system in place which avoids crushing of objects that are not glass. Brown or transparent crushed glass is used to make more glass, while other forms of crushed glass are used to form asphalt paving and blocks, or mixed into secondary concrete products.
There is approximately 12 million tons of glass generated as municipal waste every year, out of which roughly 3 million tons is recycled, leaving close to 9 million tons in landfills. The use of a glass crusher machine is a crucial part of the process for recycling this waste.
