See more on: www.feve.org About Glass Made mostly of recycled glass and natural minerals abundant in nature - sand, soda-ash and limestone - glass is a 100% recyclable material, manufactured in a one step process under one roof. Some ninety per cent of collected glass bottles and jars are used repeatedly to produce new food grade glass packaging in the closed loop system. Each time a bottle or jar is recycled into new containers, energy and raw materials are also saved and less CO2 is emitted. By recycling glass, over 12 million tons of raw materials are saved each year and over 7 million tons of CO2 are avoided - equal to taking 4 million cars off the road. We save 2.5% energy and 5% CO2 emissions for each 10% of glass recycled in the furnace.
