Event - Flat glass recovery network and supporting innovations for Scotland

A jointly hosted workshop event with British Glass and the Construction Scotland Innovation Centre.

Location : Construction Scotland Innovation Centre, Hamilton, G72 0AG

Date : From 24/10/2017 - 09:30 to 13:00

As part of the wider Circular Economy Investment Fund, we are currently inviting applications towards the development of a flat glass recovery network (or networks) for Scotland – an exciting opportunity for industry to capitalise on the true value of flat glass currently going into aggregate or landfill from construction and demolition waste streams. 

Improvements in the end of life management of these waste streams can achieve major savings in waste and increase the availability of good quality recycled cullet for the glass industry.

Zero Waste Scotland invites SMEs to develop innovative and transformational solutions to flat glass recycling in Scotland.  This will focus on closed loop recycling and learning lessons from other national systems. Action in this area will contribute to Scotland’s circular economy and low carbon goals.

Who should attend?

This event will provide a forum to allow glass manufacturers, glazing professionals, waste management, construction and logistics businesses to come together to discuss proposals for how such a network could operate in Scotland, prior to the submission of proposals for the project.

Why attend?

More specifically, delegates will have the opportunity to:
• Hear from Vlakglas, a Dutch foundation who currently run a successful network in the Netherlands;
• Understand and share knowledge on how a flat glass recovery network could operate in Scotland;
• Network with industry peers and potential project partners during the sessions and over lunch;
• Attend facilitated workshops around development of potential solutions.

The event will round up with a light lunch for delegates, and an opportunity to tour the impressive recently opened Construction Scotland Innovation Centre Innovation Factory.
