As a permanent material glass is 100% and infinitely recyclable, making it the perfect packaging choice for products today and in the future.
A recycled glass container becomes a new glass container with no alteration of the material’s molecular structure, and glass has a powerful role to play in a truly circular economy. Glass recycling is a responsible and measurable action that consumers, SMMEs and corporates can take to benefit the environment and create employment.
Through our committed support of national recycling bodies and facilities, and legislation such as the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) regulations in South Africa, Ardagh Glass Packaging – Africa is championing glass’s role in the circular economy.
Continuous research and investment in technology and processes help to reduce our waste, raw material and energy usage and carbon footprint. Ardagh Glass Packaging – Africa has demonstrated its world-class expertise in running electrical furnaces and is poised to realise the potential of zero-carbon glass.
