Pilkington UK completes greenhouse cullet recovery project

Post Time:Jan 30,2024Classify:Company NewsView:1015

Pilkington UK’s Architectural team recently completed a greenhouse cullet recovery project at the Watson Street site, showcasing a bright future for more sustainable glass production through recycling opportunities in the horticultural sector.

Recently shortlisted for the ‘Fresh Awards,’ which celebrates the best in fresh produce and related sectors, the Pilkington Botanical team have worked closely with growers and greenhouse project companies to understand specific requirements that exist in this sector.

This initiative, led by the R&D Incubator, involved close collaboration with greenhouse project company CambridgeHOK to grow understanding of the value chain for glass in the UK greenhouse market. This led to an introduction to another company also focused on sustainability who were keen to see their old greenhouse structure, previously used to grow tomatoes and cucumbers, be recycled to accommodate a newer structure.
