About us / History

In 1994, we started operations at our treatment plants in Dormagen- Nievenheim and in Worms. We specialized in processing glass waste into the market-ready secondary raw material glass granulate. We provide ready-to- be-melted quality products to our customers in the glass industry who, in turn, use them as basis to produce new glass made products. Initially, we were integrated in the corporate group of Trienekens AG. Following the takeover by RWE Umwelt AG, our company was sold to the shareholders Vanswartenbrouck in 2005. Since the beginning of 2017 both we and our also internationally successful sister company G.R.L. Glasrecycling nv (Lummen, Belgium) have been taken over by REMONDIS Recycling GmbH & Co. KG. Under every company name, we have been persuading a clear goal: the production of high-quality glass granulate. Our facilities are constantly upgraded and kept up to date. In doing so, we ensure a continuous improvement of our products. The early installation and permanent modernization of opto-electronic separators detecting ceramics, stone and porcelain as well as the use of color sorting machines have largely contributed to the fact that we have become an essential supplier of raw materials to the glass industry. Over the last decade, the glass market had to face far-reaching changes. Reasons for this are: substitution of glass containers by PET bottles and Tetra-Pak mandatory-bottle-deposit (“Zwangspfand”) system introduced on         1.1.2003 by the legislation demographic change As a result, capacities had to be adjusted in the entire container industry which consequently led to more and more glass furnace having to shut down their production. This ultimately caused us to close our glass treatment plant in Worms in the beginning of 2012. Despite all structural changes in the market we are confident about the future of glass containers. Our state-of-the-art technology will help us to continue to shape the glass market significantly.
