Increased circular use of float glass

The project aims at developing a system model for collecting, recycling and reuse of all float glass in Sweden. All glass coming from demolitions, refitting´s and waist from new productions will be part of a circular process. This means that less raw material will be needed as material consumption decreases, while energy costs and transportation are significantly reduced, and significantly less glass go to landfills. The project results in significantly less waste being produced and has a great potential to contribute to a circular economy.
