EU Circular Economy – Industry Position

The container glass industry welcomes the European Commission’s renewed focus on the circular economy to bring growth and jobs to Europe and deliver a better environment as packaging waste is turned into one of Europe’s most precious resources.

The European Container Glass manufacturing industry is a circular model genuinely recycling used bottles and jars to manufacture new ones. Once produced, glass is one of those rare materials that can be recycled infinitely without any loss of quality: recycled glass is not waste, but a precious resource the industry requires to replace virgin raw materials.
