An award came from Europe to the activities of Şişecam Group in the field of glass recycling
Şişecam Group is continuing to create awareness-raising projects in recycling applications for a sustainable life and its efforts in glass recycling have been awarded at the 27th annual meeting of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).
Şişecam Group won the Silver Prize among 55 projects in the category of “Environmental and Social Innovation” of the Sustainability Awards for its contributions to resource efficiency, glass recycling and energy efficiency and glass recycling capital.
Şişecam Group’s activities for glass recycling are of great importance in terms of sustainable production. The use of 10 percent cullet as a raw material in glass production reduces raw materials consumption by 12 percent, energy by 2.5 percent and carbon emissions by 5 percent. With glass, which is a 100 percent recyclable packaging material without any quality loss, a glass bottle cullet as input is enough to produce one full glass bottle.
