The circular economy is a new way of thinking about the future, rethinking the entire process of a product, from manufacturing to disposal, going through its useful life, from end to end, in order to reduce impacts on the environment.
It is possible to say that glass is the most human-friendly packaging material.
Glass is a 100% recyclable material. It is infinitely recyclable, as it is made of minerals such as sand, sand, limestone and feldspar. Glass containers can be totally reused in the recycling production cycle, without any loss of material, giving shape to new and incredible creations, while remaining inert and impermeable.
Internal Glass Reuse
By adding cullets to the production of glass, we reduced the withdrawal of raw materials from nature. The reuse of virgin cullet from the production process itself and the recycling of post-consumer glass (PCR) for the production of new packaging significantly reduce the consumption of virgin raw materials and energy, reducing the emission of less particulate CO2 residues, contributing to the preservation of the environment.
We reuse 100% of the glass generated from its operations, originating from the production process itself. It returns to our melt furnaces as cullet, which is also considered a raw material, and is reused to produce new packaging, reducing the withdrawal of raw materials from nature.
Flint Glass Production With Pcr Cullet In A Dedicated Furnace
As mentioned, glass is a 100% recyclable material, which can be crushed and melted again infinitely. In order to minimize the consumption of water, energy, raw materials and inputs, thereby reducing CO2 emissions and minimizing the impact on natural resources, we have a continuous production of flint glass packaging with a percentage of post-consumer glass (PCR) in a dedicated furnace .
