The article informs that energy saving and emission abatement technology new to the Great Britain is part of a 25 million pound investment programme nearing completion at Rockware Glass's Knottingley factory. An environmental package adding new cullet treatment and enhancement capacity will help the company meet its sustainable development goals. A very low emissions dust filter plant was designed to Rockware's specification to remove particulates from the chimney emissions by the injection of lime, which is constantly recycled, followed by the filtration of resulting dusts.
