THE USE OF CULLET IN THE PRODUCTION OF GLASS PRODUCTS:

 

  • Reduces energy needed to melt glass by 25-30% over virgin raw materials

Reduces energy usage, eliminates SOx and NOx, reduces carbon footprint

  • Reduces the manufacturers’ CO2 emissions by 0.23 ton for each ton of cullet used

 

  • Eliminates SOx and NOx emissions in direct proportion to reduction in virgin raw materials

 

  • Conserves virgin raw material – saving approximately 1.2 ton of virgin material for each ton of cullet used

 

  • Reduces solid waste material in landfills
