Media Advisory - Announcement of the Innovative Glass Works Plan

MONTREAL, Jan. 12, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - As a follow-up to its investment announcement in June of 2015, Éco Enteprises Québec (ÉEQ) invites the media to the unveiling of the Innovative Glass Works Plan to optimize curbside glass recycling in Quebec through the modernization of sorting centres and development of new market outlets.

This event is being held to announce an alliance between Quebec and Great Britain in the form of a strategic partnership between Machinex and Krysteline Technologies. These two companies will join forces with ÉEQ to roll out projects that demonstrate innovative glass sorting and cleaning technologies, with a view to meeting the challenges of mixed recycling. Senior executives of sorting centres, conditioners and recyclers from all over Quebec will be present at the event.

The Innovative Glass Works Plan will be unveiled in the presence of:

Denis Brisebois, Chairman, ÉEQ Board of Directors
Lionel Perez, member of the City of Montreal Executive Committee responsible for infrastructure, the Commission des services électriques de Montréal, governance, democracy and government relations
Nick Baker, General Consul of Great Britain in Montreal
Maryse Vermette, President and CEO of ÉEQ
Pierre Paré, President, Machinex
Steve Whettingsteel, Group CEO and Managing Director, Krysteline Technologies
Jean-Luc Plante, Vice-President, Optimization, ÉEQ

Come learn about the Innovative Glass Works Plan—a solution for 100% of the glass collected via curbside recycling—and celebrate an international partnership. Demonstration stands will provide an exclusive preview of innovative new technologies with 3D images and videos, as well as examples of market outlets for recycled glass.
