Lup designs market and community-centered solutions for transforming glass waste into low-carbon products in Latin America.
Managing glass waste locally offers reliable economic opportunities for waste collectors, diverts valuable resources from landfill, and reduces GHG emissions along the recycling value chain.
What we do
Streamline the project development process for waste recycling solutions
Connect social, environmental and economic metrics to ensure viability
R&D on high-impact end-uses for recycled glass with an emphasis on commercialization
Holistic glass solutions
Lup approaches waste management through a holistic lens through careful consideration of the supply chains, material type and quality, and buyers or end-market opportunities for recycled products. We design or leverage waste solutions that provide innovative end-uses for key industries such as construction and agriculture in Latin America. Where possible, we establish synergies through activities that foster industrial symbiosis.
If you're looking for machinery, Krysteline can provide a range of glass processing systems from simple stand-alone units to multi-functional purification plants. Contact them for a quote.

Operational cost models and/or impact calculations
Extended Producer Responsibility and legislative support
Workshops and training sessions on a circular economy
We conducted a feasibility study for the use of recycled glass as a substitute material in construction for a client in Central America. The study included evaluating the glass collection system, designing plant configurations, financial models and a framework for the lab trials to determine project viability.
