- UK-based Nulife Glass Recycling Group plans to invest $5.9 million in to the construction of a cathode ray tube (CRT) recycling plant in Bristol, VA.
- Nulife designs, constructs and operates furnaces that use recycling technology to extract the toxic lead from the glass tubes in a sustainable way.
- The new facility will be capable of processing up to 10 metric tons of glass every day.
The project was secured for the area by support from the Virginia Economic Development Partnership, the city of Bristol, the Commonwealth Center for Advanced Manufacturing (CCAM) and Virginia's aCorridor. CCAM approached Nulife when it learned the company was thinking of opening a location in the US.
The Virginia location is the second facility opened by Nulife in the country. In 2013, Nulife opened its first facility near Buffalo, NY.
