USE OF CULLET IN PLACE OF VIRGIN MATERIALS IN GLASS PRODUCTION:

  • Reduces raw material costs to the manufacturer

 

  • Prolongs life of furnaces producing glass by 10%

 

  • Uses less energy because of lower melting temperature

 

  • Reduces costs associated with carbon and other toxic emissions

 

  • Reduces costs to recyclers who would otherwise stockpile or landfill unusable 3-mix cullet

 

  • Expands municipal recycling through single-stream programs – saving municipalities landfill costs and generating new revenue sources
