Lukashenko visits new glass manufacturing enterprise in Grodno

GRODNO, 2 April (BelTA) – Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko visited a new Grodno-based glass manufacturing facility of OAO Grodno Glassworks, BelTA has learned.

The head of state went on a tour of the manufacturing site Auls of OAO Grodno Glassworks.

The president received a report on the implementation of the investment project designed to start manufacturing glass containers using innovative, energy-effective, and resource-saving technologies.

As a result of the investment project the company has started making glass containers using three lines of a glass furnace with the daily output capacity of 220 tonnes. The company has also created 104 workstations and has provided jobs to 279 people.

The project’s implementation will increase the scale of manufacturing at OAO Grodno Glassworks. The annual output of glass containers will increase by 181.4 million pieces or by 54.9%. The choice of available glass containers will increase as well.

The enterprise has implemented everything it had intended to accomplish from the point of view of technologies and the manufacturing process. The ability to make glass containers of any design was one of the ideas.

The enterprise’s future development depends on improving the manufacturing technology by using a machine that the local glass blowers describe as wonderful. The Grodno-based enterprise does not have such a machine yet but the matter will be examined during a visit to an expo in Shanghai.

“Our people have everything. They only lack some ‘wonder’. I am ready to participate in it. The key thing is for you to bring a good idea. If your idea is justified, then we will do it. Just don’t hide, lie, or steal. Then everything will be okay,” the head of state stressed.

During the tour of the enterprise Aleksandr Lukashenko also drew attention to the collection and processing of secondary material resources: “Social networks complain a lot now that instead of separating the waste the garbage truck puts everything into one pile. It is a crime. This is why it is necessary to look at how the government has organized this separate waste collection and shipment. It could save us. If people drink from so many bottles, they have to recycle as many. And then we won’t need sodium carbonate [that Belarus imports to make glass], to put bluntly.”

“We sit on money. This is gold. And the situation is the same everywhere: pasteboard, paper, and the rest,” the head of state added.
