Glass Recycling

Abstract : The main objective of this chapter is to give the reader a general overview of glass recycling activity. Industrial and academic results are presented, which are useful to open new possibilities of economic activities using glass waste for environmental benefits for the society. The greatest answer to master the environmental effect of glass wastes is to reuse them. Recycling of these wastes principally from glass bottles and flat glasses will benefit in safeguarding the earth's natural resources, diminishing landfill places, and saving energy and money. With a number of TV sets and computers attaining their end-of-life, electronic production is also challenged with the main difficulty of dealing with used devices. © 2019, Springer Nature Switzerland AG.
