Glass Recycling Project
Naga Earth is partnering with Gaea (Global Action for Environmental Awareness) to bring the first large scale glass recycling project to Cambodia.
What is the problem?
Businesses in Siem Reap use a significant amount of glass bottles. The bottles are not valuable enough to the local recyclers, so they are discarded or put in the trash.
This creates a large amount of non biodegradable materials piling up around Siem Reap or being added daily to the local landfill
Gaea has purchased a glass pulverizer that will convert glass bottles into gravel and sand.
As of May 2019, the machine is sitting at the port and should be set it up at the Gaea facility by June 2019.
The finished sand will be used for water filtration and cement
