Gleisdorf (euro adhoc) - Gleisdorf, April 1, 2009. The Styrian mechanical engineering and plant building company Binder+Co recently received three major contracts in the Environmental Technology Segment, which represent a notable success in the face of the current crisis. These orders mean that the order backlog of EUR 32.99 million carried over into the current business year has now been increased by a further EUR 8.0 million.

Used glass recycling system for South Africa represents one of the largest environmental technology orders in company history The newly founded Nampak Wiegand Glass company (a joint venture between the listed South African company, Nampak Ltd., and the German enterprise Wiegand Glas) has commissioned Binder+Co with the construction of a complete used glass processing facility at its glassworks in Roodekop, South Africa. The works produces container glass using three melting ends and three production lines. The ordered sorting plant is to initially handle 24 tons of glass per hour and when fully completed, 36 tons per hour.

The aim is employ used glass for the production of high-purity glass meal, which will be utilised by the insulation materials industry.
