Dear Claude King,
The question is, what kind of laminant are you dealing with? Ceramic laminant can be removed manually or with automatic systems. Plastic laminant usually would require a heating system to remove it.
Glass recycling technology includes crushers such as hammer mills or rotating disks with breaker bars, drying equipment, contaminant removal equipment, screeners, sorters, etc. Manufacturers list their machinery in several dirrectories such as the Thompson Register or the annual review of waste technology published by Waste Age magazine. The source that will be of most use to you at this point will be:
Best Practices in Glass Recycling by the Clean Washington Center, Seattle, WA. This should be located at their website of www.cwc.org.
