Shark Solutions establishes new California windshield recycling plant.

PRESS RELEASE

Shark Glass Recycling West has been established in Victorville, California to help meet the growing demand of environmentally focused businesses and consumers to divert laminated glass from landfills and lower GHG (greenhouse gas) emissions. Shark Solutions is a Denmark based cleantech company and a global leader in the recycling of PVB (PolyVinyl Butyral), an interlayer found in windshields and laminated glass. “The disposing of damaged laminated glass and broken windshields is a serious environmental issue with over 1 billion vehicles worldwide and a vast amount of architectural/building glass”, says Jens Holmegaard, Managing Director. Shark Solutions provides real and sustainable answers to avoid sending this material to landfills, by transforming both the glass and PVB interlayer into useful raw materials that help enhance various products to be more environmentally friendly.

The Company was established in 2005 and has since focused its efforts on growing this unique technology and solution. With European locations in Denmark and Belgium and more recent expansion in North America (Atlanta, Georgia on east coast and near Los Angeles, California on the west coast), the company continues with its mission to establish strategically placed locations to maximize this growing business. The goal of reducing waste and lowering GHG emissions is shared by leading companies and public agencies as a beneficial way to build a better future for both business and the planet. This California location of Shark Solutions was funded in part by a grant from the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) through California Climate Investments. Shark Solutions is proud to be part of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals Accelerator program, and a portfolio company of leading Danish private equity firm Blue Equity.
