What is Glass Waste?
Waste glass is a waste product whose quantity is high and which is hard to eliminate. Known to most, waste glass mainly consists of container glass. It is distributed, melted, and remelted to produce new glass. The majority of waste glass, however, cannot be reused in the manufacturing of new glass. These are the kinds of glasses that are compromised or cannot be remelted to create new glasses. However, they are usually deployed in other forms such as aggregate for construction. On the contrary, in almost all cases, recycled glass is used to create new glass.
For new bottles and jars, glass companies combine cullet, granular material made by crushing bottles, with sand, limestone, and other materials. It’s obvious how beneficial cullet is when it comes to glass recycling. Glass manufacturers can reduce their energy bills by using cullet. It has several advantages in the glass industry. Repetition of this method gives rise to an indefinite amount of quality without deteriorating the end product. Repetition of this method gives rise to an indefinite amount of quality without deteriorating the end product. Using sand and other minerals, it can be crushed, melted and recycled indefinitely.
How is Glass Waste Recycled?
Recycling waste can be less expensive than dumping it in a landfill since it avoids the fees associated with landfill waste. It’s usually charged per tonne, although it could also be dependent on other metrics, such as the number of bags or sacks it fills. It is first necessary to separate glass from other recyclables and place it in a recycling container. Every metric ton of discarded glass recycled into new products prevents the emission of 315 kilos of carbon dioxide into the environment. The energy saved by recycling a glass jar is enough to light a bulb for four hours. In Switzerland, 91 percent of manufactured glass is recovered for recycling, making it the finest glass recycling technique in the world.
Below are the steps involved in glass waste recycling:
The collection of glass waste materials is the first and most important stage in the recycling process.. The waste collected is used as raw material in the recycling industry. All of the waste that has been collected is transferred to a recycling facility and accumulated there.
Separation of waste materials: The second step in the recycling process is to separate the glass waste materials. This is because not all glass waste is made of the same material and most of them have different colours that cannot be mixed together.
Melting: Then after the sorting, the glass is melted according to the grades and then blown up into new glass products such as jars and bottles.
