Orora's new Glass Beneficiation Plant is located adjacent to our state-of-the-art Glass facility in Gawler, South Australia. The $25m Glass Beneficiation Plant was officially opened in October 2022 by South Australia Deputy Premier, the Hon Susan Close, with the support of the Commonwealth and South Australia government.
The process of beneficiation involves removing impurities from used or broken glass through crushing, cleaning, and sorting to deliver crushed contaminant-free glass – known as “cullet” – ready to contribute to making new recycled glass products.
Our new Glass Beneficiation Plant will allow us to access more recycled glass from across Australia, therefore reducing the amount of glass that ends up in landfills. This will allow us to produce more recycled glass, whilst also improving the quality of glass products from having more control over the mix and quality of the cullet.
