2010 E-Scrap Conference, booth #504-505: ECS Refining, a recycling and end-of-life services company that specializes in electronic, industrial equipment and hazardous wastes, is partnering with Dlubak Glass Company to form a joint venture that provides a comprehensive domestic recycling solution for the electronic recycling industry. The new company, Regenesys Glass Processing (http://www.regenglass.com/) combines 110 years of experience to offer a unique blend of proprietary offerings and knowledge in CRT glass recycling, metal processing and refining.
Regenesys Glass Processing is especially optimized to address the CRT recycling needs of the e-waste industry, which needs a solution to responsibly handle CRT recycling domestically and reduce exports of this hazardous waste. The company uses advanced, proprietary approaches to extract metal oxides from CRT glass and chemically blend glass for the automotive, fiberglass, bead, and lighting industries. Initial processing facility locations are planned for California, Ohio, and Texas, with phased expansions to be announced.
“Dlubak is expert in working with glass of all types, with the technology and know-how to blend glass for use in a variety of manufacturing scenarios, while ECS Refining is expert in metallurgical processes — so it’s a match of great talents,” said Curt Spivey, VP of corporate development for ECS Refining and incoming general manager of Regenesys Glass Processing. “The e-waste industry needs a solution to its CRT glass problem — one that goes beyond simply separating panel glass from funnel glass.
