The advantages of recycling glass
The main ecological advantages of using glass cullet in the glass making process are
Raw material consumption is reduced by increasing the usage rate of collected glass cullet, thus the glass can be produced easier and faster
Less carbon dioxide emission occurs in the atmosphere., carbon dioxide emitted in the atmosphere is reduced by 20% in every 1 ton of glass broken.
Instead of the raw materials used in the glass composition (silica sand, limestone and sodium carbonate), the use of glass shavings is replaced, thus consuming less natural resources. For each ton of glass broken, the amount of unused raw material consumption is reduced by 1.2 tons
Optimized use of water resources makes it possible to use less than 50% in every 1 ton of glass production.
