...ecological refining of mineral RawMaterials

Glass industry

Europe is the World´s biggest glass producer. Sand is the most important raw material for glass making, being the principal source of Silicon dioxide. However, most deposits are not of sufficient purity for glass making. End users of high-quality sand face increasing costs resulting from shortages and long distance from suppliers, causing high transportation costs.

Demand
Nearby available low-iron sands (less than 0.05% by weight Fe2O3), particle size from 0.1 to 0.5 mm, residual moisture content of less than 5% water.

Solution
Local supplier of high quality silica sand.
