Details of planned float glass plant for Guelph, Ont.
The Xinyi glass plant in Guelph will be a modern manufacturing facility with a total floor area of 2 million square feet.
The facility will provide enclosed structures for glass manufacturing, corporate offices, a warehouse and loading bays.
All manufacturing operations will be carried out within enclosed buildings. Loading goods and finished glass products will be done in the loading bay area of the warehouse section in the enclosed factory buildings.
Float glass manufacturing is a dry production operation, and the production areas need to be maintained in a clean environment to avoid adhesion of dust onto the glass surface that can affect the quality of the glass stock sheet.
Appropriate measures have been incorporated into facility design, orientation of production lines and operational arrangements to effectively minimize noise and dust impact on the neighbourhood.
