Specialists from Glass Technology Services Limited (GTS) have been invited by WRAP  onto their panel of experts as part of their "Project Monitors" project. This four year project will see GTS assist with the day-to-day administration and project management of glass-based WRAP-funded projects.

As the UK's centre of excellence in glass, GTS is active both in research and development and technical troubleshooting. All types of glass and glass production are covered from fibre to flat, from container to scientific, and includes all stages in the supply chain, from production to product evaluation, testing to recycling.

WRAP's work in developing innovative higher value markets for recycled glass has produced a range of imaginative solutions, many of which have now begun large scale trials. This complex and diverse project mix requires intensive and specialist project management support.

GTS will provide a range of support functions on WRAP's behalf from initial contact, monitoring and measurement of project performance against objectives, including budget management. GTS will review, assess and validate work against defined milestones and provide regular reports to WRAP. It will also be responsible for proposing corrective action plans if any project begins to experience any difficulty attaining agreed targets.

Says Dave Dalton, General Manager of GTS: "As the collection volumes of recycled glass grows, so does the need to find alternative uses for this valuable material. The projects supported by WRAP have thus far demonstrated the versatility of glass and the potential for new applications.

"The appointment of GTS to the panel of experts tasked with managing and monitoring new projects is we believe recognition of GTS's pivotal position between our industrial members and the wider technical and academic communities. Advances in the field of recycling are moving apace and GTS staff relish the prospect of being at the forefront of these developments during this four-year contract."

GTS will be responsible for ensuring all project work is undertaken in accordance in accordance with currently recognised best practice. At the end of each project, GTS will evaluate the contract management service carried out between all parties and if necessary will make recommendations for the future.
