The production and use of glass has a number of environmental impacts
Glass bottle can be found in almost every aspect of life, alcohol glass bottles (wine glass bottles, beer glass bottles), beverage glass bottles, medicine glass bottles, etc. Plenty of glass bottles were produced, abandoned daily worldwide.
New glass is made from four main ingredients: sand, soda ash, limestone and other additives for color or special treatments. Although there is no shortage of these raw materials as yet, they all have to be quarried, which can damage the landscape, affect the environment and use more energy.
Benefit we can get through glass waste recycling
New glass made from glass bottle waste recycling
Recycled glass can be used to make a wide range of everyday products and some that are completely unexpected, including:
- New bottles and jars
- Glass wool insulation for homes, which helps with energy efficiency
- Recycled to produce glasphalt, mosaic glass, glass tile, scagliola, etc.
Energy saving for new glass production
The addition of domestic waste glass (known as cullet) to a furnace in the glass manufacturing process, substantially reduces the energy requirement and decreases CO2 emissions. Each ton of cullet added to the furnace saves 1.2 tons of raw materials – decreasing emissions still further.
