Join us on a visit to a model of the circular economy – Spring Pool Glass, the largest glass recycling factory on the island. Taiwan has one of the world’s highest glass recycling rates. This is largely due to the work of Spring Pool Glass, which recycles about 100,000 metric tons a year – 70 percent of all the glass recycled in this country.
Spring Pool is one of Taiwan’s most innovative companies. It started 40 years ago as a traditional recycling business. But now it produces a wide range of products, including high-tech, green construction materials, such as energy-saving insulation blocks made from recycled glass panel displays.
While visiting Spring Pool’s tourist factory, you will be able to see skilled masters with decades of experience working with glass. You will also see how the company collects glass for recycling, grinds it into sand and uses it to create a variety of products.
