The mining of metal ores is a cleaning-intensive process. Take, for example, the large, open-pit Cerro Verde mine near the Peruvian city of Arequipa. The copper mine produces around 270,000 tonnes of copper ore and 6,500 tonnes of molybdenum annually. Recycling remains a trump card in glass processing. There are around 250,000 glass containers in Germany, and up to 85% of new bottles are produced from recycled material. SPANGLER Automation has automated a system for particularly "motley" collections. There are around 3,500 kilometres between Germany and Azerbaijan. In the republic between the Caspian Sea and the Caucasus, SPANGLER Automation was involved in the construction of a processing plant for glass sand.
