In Styria, the green heart of Austria, you can find the world market leader in glass recycling.

Most Austrians only recognise Gleisdorf in Styria as a junction on the A2 "Südautobahn", just before Graz. However, Gleisdorf  also offers something unique - a world market leader. The company Binder & Co , located in Gleisdorf, is the world's number one in the production of special machines for glass processing, which can also filter out the smallest unsuitable materials from recyclable glass. The patented glass processing technology can tell the difference not only between coloured and white glass, but also ceramics and other unsuitable materials up to a width of ten millimetres. Binder & Co also provide packing technology in addition to glass processing.

The company, which today employs 260 people, has its roots in 1894 when it was founded as a small builder's and fitter's shop by master locksmith Ludwig Binder in Graz-Eggenberg. The company is a complete service provider, from bulk processing to packaging. Today Binder & Co is not only a world wide technology leader in glass recycling, but also a market leader in sorting difficult separable materials. The export quota is 80%.
