G-Eco Glass has recently launched their unique range of glass crushing machines here in Namibia. The medium glass crusher machine can crush an estimated 150kg of glass per hour, grinding it into non-sharp, non-hazardous glass sand.
The glass sand can be used for sandblasting, filtration, horticulture and landscaping. Decorative items and practical pieces such as bricks, pavers, table tops, tiles & gravestones can also be manufactured. MD Steve Hirst is promoting an initiative for a sustainable and profitable approach to value added recycled glass, which can be replicated throughout rural Namibia at lodges, village councils / municipalities or anywhere glass collection is problematic.
