Recycling

The recycling of glass contributes to : 

  • Prevention of natural resources, reducing the extraction of sand and avoiding the deposit of glass in designated hull landfills; 
  • Reduction of emissions: carbon dioxide (CO2), the oxidation state (NOX) and sulfur dioxide (SO2); 
  • Reduction of energy consumption. The production of glass from recycled materials consumes less energy than the same production without recycled glass;
  • Creating awareness and changing the behaviour of the population, contributing to a more balanced society.
