UK: glass cullet taking a train ride
The Port of Tilbury, London’s major port, and URM UK loaded their first train of bulk glass cullet processed from a new recycling facility at the port.
Some 1,200 t of raw glass cullet (furnace-ready recycled glass) left Tilbury en route for Cheshire this month by train, the first shipment under a long term supply agreement.
URM operates some of the world’s most advanced cullet sorting and treatment plants. The port took possession of the rail terminal this year and reconfigured the site to create a first for Tilbury, a dedicated bulk materials rail terminal for recycled and construction materials. (ben)
