The PA Recycling Markets Center will hold a webinar on September 20 on The Impact of Glass Recycling In the Glass Container Industry from 1:30 to 2:45 p.m.
Pam Baylor, Director of Purchasing and Customer Service for Anchor Glass, will explain the benefits of using recycled glass when making new glass containers, including, reduced energy consumption resulting in lower emissions, and 100 percent recyclability of the feedstock with no waste material in the forming process.
In addition, several obstacles with using recycled cullet will be detailed, including, contamination that causes imperfections in the containers, which results in lost production efficiency, increased accident potential from glass related injury.
