There have been glass bottles in my country since ancient times. In the past, academic circles believed that glassware was very rare in ancient times, so it should only be owned and used by a few ruling classes. However, recent studies believe that ancient glassware is not difficult to produce and manufacture, but it is not easy to preserve, so it is rare in later generations. Glass bottle is a traditional beverage packaging container in my country, and glass is also a kind of packaging material with a long history. With many packaging materials pouring into the market, glass containers still occupy an important position in beverage packaging, which is inseparable from its packaging characteristics that other packaging materials cannot replace.
The use of glass to make packaging containers has a long history, and the large-scale industrial production of glass bottles and cans has been a matter of nearly a hundred years. As packaging containers, glass bottles and cans have many advantages, such as abundant raw materials, low prices, high transparency, and good chemical stability. It is breathable, does not change color, can be opened and closed many times, and can be recycled and reused; although it is fragile and heavy, glass bottles and cans have always been important packaging containers. The large-scale use of glass bottles and cans has gradually made its recycling and reuse more important. Generally speaking, the recycling and reuse of glass bottles and cans is easier than packaging containers made of other materials, and they only need to be cleaned before reuse. The glass industry uses recycled waste glass as raw materials, which has significant environmental benefits. Energy can be reduced. Consume 4% to 32%, reduce air pollution by 20%, reduce mineral waste by 50%, and reduce water consumption by 50%. Starting from protecting the environment and protecting resources, countries around the world advocate the recycling of glass bottles and cans.
The recycling volume of glass bottles is increasing every year, but this recycling quantity is huge and immeasurable. According to the Glass Packaging Association: The energy saved by recycling a glass bottle can make a 100-watt light bulb light up for about 4 hours, run a computer for 30 minutes, and watch 20 minutes of TV programs. Therefore, recycling glass is A matter of great significance. Glass bottle recycling saves energy and reduces the waste capacity of landfills, which can provide more raw materials for other products, including glass bottles of course. According to the National Consumer Plastic Bottle Report of the Chemical Products Council of the United States, approximately 2.5 billion pounds of plastic bottles were recycled in 2009, with a recycling rate of only 28%. Recycling glass bottles is simple and beneficial, in line with sustainable development strategies, can save energy and protect natural resources.
