It appears that Booma is affiliated or owned by Bohemia Machine. If that is the case, Bohemia Machine has had a lot of experience making equipment for the glass industry including automatic cutting machines. They have made equipment for many glass factories. If this is in fact true, I suspect that they can be capable of producing some decent cullet if they actually find it to be a profitable venture.
It appears they may have some financial interests from Otakar Motka who has a large group of companies he owns including the producer of Simax borosilicate glass that according to their website has the capability to melt 200 tons per day. It will b e interesting to see how this all develops.
