Glass recycling in Europe – an infographic!

Recycling glass is cool, recycling glass is hot (literally, you need quite a few degrees to recycle glass), but above all: recycling glass is necessary. For you, for me, for our planet.

FEVE has been collecting data about glass recycling over the past few years. And as it turns out, Europe is doing pretty well on this subject. That’s why we’ve made a nice and clear infographic so you can see it with your own eyes. Because we hope you’re part of that 80% of European consumers who regularly recycle their glass bottles… And if you’re not, what are you waiting for?

    As I know the process
    Broken bottles can be used 20% maximum in the glass melting process in the furnace (for energy saving) with the use of large quantities, damages the sustainability of new bottles by making them breakable ,thing,
    There seems to be real recycled 90% of used glass bottles which gravely damages
    the bottling of liquids in the food industry.
