Glass is a material that is perfectly suited to recycling. It can be melted and recycled over and over again, without any loss in quality.
Glass is made from a mixture of sand, sodium carbonate – also called soda – and lime, and temperatures of between 1,500 and 1,600 °C are needed to blend the three ingredients. Using recycled glass, we not only conserve natural resources but also save energy. Specifically, glass manufacturing plants requires 25% less energy, and under half the amount of soda to lower the melting point. As a result, less CO2 is emitted, and we contribute to the fight against global warming.
Sorting correctly is the basis of any successful recycling process. To sort glass correctly, we count on you too. Consult the sorting rules for glass.
