From waste to raw material
Maltha is a leading processor of packaging and flat glass in Europe. Each year we process more than 1 million tonnes of glass waste from companies, citizens and municipalities into high-quality new raw materials for use in making new products.
To collect the glass, we work together closely with collection companies and recycling schemes throughout Europe. The collected glass is purified at Maltha, using advanced methods and reprocessed into various types of glass cullet that fully correspond to the specifications of our customers in the glass and glass wool industry. Thus, for example, beer bottles can already be composed of 80% recycled glass.
Glass is endlessly recyclable without loss of quality. Glass is a typical example of the circular economy. The use of recycled raw materials is good for the environment and cost efficient. In this way, Maltha makes glass endless.
