Glass is an ancient material over 5000 years old, its infinitely remeltable nature means that it is likely that it has been recycled for almost as long as it has been manufactured. Increasing recycling rates is one of the most effective ways to reduce the environmental footprint of glass manufacturing, however this will only go so far to achieve carbon reduction targets.

Through a series of case studies from current and recent projects, this webinar will look at how glass manufacturing can contribute to a sustainable economy. Topics discussed will include the use of alternative fuels, substitution of quarried raw materials for secondary raw-materials produced from other industries waste and new product design to increase circular business models.
