Producing glass from recycled glass rather than raw materials uses 75% less energy. This is largely due to the much lower production temperature, which conserves energy and oil, and extends the life of the furnace. The energy saved by recycling a single bottle could light a 15-watt low energy light bulb for
24 hours.1recycling glass therefore results in a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. Australian glass bottles have generally 40 –
70% recycled content, which means that your bottles and jars go directly into the manufacture of new bottles and jars at an energy saving. For every tonne of glass recycled, there is a saving of 225 kg carbon dioxide. 2 Further more, using recycled
glass conserves more than 1.1 tonnes of raw materials per tonne.
