Reducing its carbon footprint has become a priority for the flat glass industry, especially by increasing its recyclable content.
In fact, increasing its glass cullet rate (broken glass) in its glass production allows not only to limit its raw material consumption such as sand, bus also to reduce significantly its CO2 emissions. By using cullet, you can benefit from two advantages: you will be using less energy for melting glass and this process doesn’t release any CO2.
