GlassRepurpose, an international competition organised by Steklarna Hrastnik and the Museum of Architecture and Design

Glass is 100% recyclable and enables creative reuse

 

Glass is a sustainable and environmentally friendly material. With responsible use and reuse, it can significantly affect the preservation of natural resources.


Sustainability and corporate social responsibility in all fields of activity are among Steklarna Hrastnik’s key commitments, which is also confirmed by the company’s investments in the best available production technology in the transition to Industry 4.0, which will improve its energy efficiency and additionally reduce its ecological footprint.


Steklarna Hrastnik would like the business and general public to recognise the endless possibilities and opportunities offered by the reuse of glass and, in cooperation with the Museum of Architecture and Design and in the context of the BIO 26 Biennial of Design, they have organised the # GlassRepurpose competition.


The competition is aimed at architects, designers, photographers and anyone else interested in this topic. If you are interested in the competition and the terms and conditions of participation, you can read more about it at LINK.

 

“Steklarna Hrastnik is committed to the superior quality of the products coming from our glassworks, but not at the expense of the environment. Sustainability and corporate social responsibility to the environment and to people are included in all our business processes and decisions,” said Peter Čas, General Manager of Steklarna Hrastnik, on the occasion, adding that “various innovative projects and investments in the best available production technology in the transition to Industry 4.0 improve our energy efficiency and our ecological footprint. Creativity, boldness of thought and innovative approaches are what we want to see from the participants in the GlassRepurpose competition.”

 

Reducing the ecological footprint with new solutions

Steklarna Hrastnik’s commitment to responsible environmental actions is also evident from its indicators of sustainability. Investing in innovative solutions associated with the utilisation of waste heat, replacing fossil fuels with environmentally friendlier resources, increasing the utilisation of melting furnaces and other solutions have enabled the glassworks to reduce energy consumption per ton of melted glass by 10% in 2018 compared to 2017, while CO2 emissions were reduced by 6%, NOx emissions per ton of melted glass by 40%, and water use by 50%.

 

Together with its partners, the company is continually on the search for new solutions. The recently installed solar power plant will be connected to the hydrogen production plant – a part of a pilot device that will produce a pure, carbon-free source of energy – hydrogen. This will develop new technologies for melting glass using hydrogen and the resulting decarbonisation of fuel, which will consequently reduce Steklarna Hrastnik’s carbon footprint. They are also planning to install another 400 kW solar power plant, which will allow the glassworks to generate three percent of the electricity consumed in the plant.

 

The market of Steklarna Hrastnik is a global one, where sustainable companies and brands expect the same from their partners.

Steklarna Hrastnik continues to invest in green technologies, reduce its environmental footprint and build a competitive advantage on the global market

Steklarna Hrastnik is dedicated to premium quality based on sustainability and social responsibility in all areas of operation. The success of environmentally responsible companies is not only measured through business results, but mainly using sustainable indicators that reaffirm their excellence where the environment is concerned. Despite increasing its capacities in the past year, Steklarna Hrastnik has further improved its energy efficiency and reduced its environmental footprint by implementing a range of innovative projects and investments in the best production technology available while transitioning to industry 4.0. The company continues to make similar investments, as evident from the planned investments in a new furnace and a solar power plant.

 

By investing in innovative solutions to make the most of waste heat, replace fossil fuels with environmentally friendly alternatives, improve the utilisation of melting furnaces and other solutions, in 2018 Steklarna Hrastnik reduced the consumption of energy per ton of melted glass by 10%, CO2 emissions by 6%, and NOx per ton of melted glass by 40%, as well as using 50% less water than in 2017.

 

Environmental policy is one of the cornerstones of all of Steklarna Hrastnik’s operations. “As all our employees share a dedication to environmental responsibility, we are constantly working to improve our processes and use the best technologies available in order to minimise our negative impact on the environment as much as possible,” said Peter Čas, General Director of Steklarna Hrastnik, highlighting the focus of employees on environmental responsibility. Thanks to its environmentally responsible approach, the company is also building a competitive advantage, since it operates on the global market of companies and brands that are sustainably oriented and expects the same from their partners.  

 

New solutions for reducing the environmental footprint
When introducing new technologies, Steklarna Hrastnik always considers their environmental impact. “At the same time, we are constantly working with our partners to find new solutions. We are careful about using natural resources and making their consumption more efficient. We have recently installed a solar power plant, which will be connected to a hydrogen production facility – a part of a pilot plant for the production of hydrogen, a clean, carbon-free energy product. This will enable us to develop new technologies for melting glass using hydrogen, leading to the decarbonisation of fuel and thus reducing Steklarna Hrastnik's carbon footprint," said Peter Čas, General Director of Steklarna Hrastnik, about the efforts and plans for environmental sustainability. He added, "The new furnace, which will increase our current capacity by 17%, from 240 tons to 280 tons of daily production, will also be based on the most up-to-date technology and will be ready to be fuelled partly by hydrogen.” Steklarna Hrastnik is also preparing to build another 400 kW solar power plant, which will enable the production of 3% of the energy consumed by the company.

Do you have an original idea for repurposing an old glass bottle?

September 1st–30th, 2019


Develop a presentation in the form of an original photo or a thirty-second video showing how to repurpose discarded glass packaging and be eligible for a €1,000 prize! The BIO 26 competition #GlassRepurpose is being held in cooperation between Steklarna Hrastnik and the Museum of Architecture and Design, and it relates to the main theme of this year’s edition of the biennial—namely, information and how it is managed, made accessible to the public, processed, and shaped. Because glass products can also be considered information carriers, and because Steklarna Hrastnik is a socially responsible company, the following question is in order: what happens to these products—to these information carriers—after they have outlived their original intended use and their lifecycle is completed? What new value or information can an old glass bottle create? Participate by tagging your post with #GlassRepurpose and @mao_slovenia on your public Instagram profile. We’re looking for original, out-of-the-box ideas with market potential. The winner will be determined by a panel of judges.

Improving working conditions during periods of high heat

At Steklarna Hrastnik, we strive to make working conditions for our staff as tolerable as possible even during the summer when temperatures easily exceed 30 degrees Celsius. We continuously invest in technical solutions to cool the production premises during heatwaves, and which have been successful and have made working conditions much better.


The newest addition this year is a cooling system that is a special type of air conditioning device that is also used for both heating, cooling and airing out the production premises.


This significantly contributes to reducing the heat, making it easier to work. Our first goal is to ensure even better working conditions and consequently ensuring the health and satisfaction of our employees. We want to work together to create better working conditions, improve the work environment and workplace, as well as raise awareness about the importance of health for a high-quality way of life.
