“Zero Waste” using Styrian Technology

9. February 2018


The Styria based Binder+Co is a specialist in environmental technology that is setting new standards in the recycling of waste glass. Binder+Co technology has now become a critical element in achieving the goals of the recently launched Zero Waste initiative of the State of Colorado. A sophisticated sensor based sorting system recycles 80,000 tonnes of broken glass every year. As a result, the glass recycling rate in Colorado has risen from 6.25 to 21.65 percent. With this project, the company has now been nominated for the USA-Biz-Award - also known as the “Business Oscar”. Also in the running is BDI with a BioDiesel plant that converts waste fats in the Los Angeles metropolitan region into fuel grade diesel.
