New Machinex Partnership for Glass Recycling Solution


Plessisville, QC – February 4th 2016 – Machinex is proud to announce its alliance with Krysteline Technologies for the introduction of their unique glass Implosion technology and associated equipment within the North American marketplace.

This strategic distributorship has been formed to provide complementary equipment to the well-established Machinex range of Material Recycling Facilities (MRF) and material handling technologies. The Krysteline technology is capable of significantly enhancing the glass recovery process within a MRF with effective and efficient benefits towards the end marketplace and existing economic conditions. The highly innovative Implosion process is not the only technology on offer though; Machinex & Krysteline can offer a full range of glass clean-up systems specifically designed for MRFs including a full range of bulk handling equipment incorporating air density clean-up and screeners to cover all sizes of glass. In addition to its range of technologies, Krysteline can also assist as required with recovered glass commodities trading.

Complementary to the MRF clean-up equipment is a range of glass purification systems and technologies for the removal of all metals including non-conductive material. Therevolutionary Pyro Drier focuses on the removal of non-glass contaminates, high speed low energy Cascade Imploders for resizing glass, high capacity minerals screeners as well as robotic packaging systems. All of this innovative technology leads to bespoke solutions which allows for all recovered glass to be transformed economically for use in not only remelt but also such applications as water filtration, sport turf dressing, expendable abrasive and powders.

Pierre Paré, CEO of Machinex says – “for us at Machinex the challenges of processing, recovery and the clean-up of glass has always been determined by the value of glass for re-melt. The market conditions for glass have always been challenging due to the high haulage costs, stringent quality standards and colour disparity dominating strategies and in many cases legislation. The Krysteline technology interprets glass in a different way allowing for a more consistent value to be achieved on all recovered glass, no matter its size or colour. This is great news for the remelt industry as well as other emerging applications. We look forward to working with Krysteline across our diverse global marketplace.”

Steve Whettingsteel CEO of Krysteline Technologies says – “for many years we have sought the right strategic partner for our products in North America. The diverse market sectors and the continents sheer scale can be a daunting prospect for foreign companies. Our strategic alliance allows for us to build our equipment locally, reducing costs, decreasing delivery times and of course creating long term sustainable employment. The excellent design and manufacturing facilities of Machinex aims to offer a seamless interface of our technology across this interesting and diverse marketplace. This flexible approach offers Machinex the opportunity to support its clients in way never seen before. We at Krysteline are excited by our strategic alliance with Machinex.”

About Krysteline Technologies

Since 1998 Krysteline have provided its patented glass processing systems to diverse markets globally. At its conception the Imploders were deployed on many cruise ships and NATO vessels. As demand grew for its products for land based applications so did the scale of its technology. The Imploders evolved to meet the challenging and diverse market conditions it faced ashore. The Krysteline strategy provides a mechanism for not only glass recovery but also glass refinement. A number of industry first technologies are provided by Krysteline including the recently introduced Pyro Drier for purification of heavily contaminated glass into clean sterile cullet across the whole spectrum of sizes. Its technology enhances the quality of most glass types improving recovery rates for remelt and creation of refined sands and powders for existing and emerging markets.
