Glass Recycling And Development Prospects

Glass is a kind of commonly used material in modern life of mankind, it can make all sorts of appliance, household utensils, flat glass. Therefore, there are many wastes. In order to make sustainable use of resources, glass and other waste products can be collected to turn harm into benefit and turn waste into treasure. At present, there are several types of recycling and utilization of glass products: as casting flux, transformation utilization, recycling, raw material recycling and reuse.


1, as casting flux. Broken glass can be used as flux for casting steel and casting copper alloy melting.


2. Transformation and utilization. Transformational utilization is a recycling method that urgently needs to be developed. In the future, there will be many new value-added technologies for transformational utilization. After the pre-treated broken glass is processed into small glass particles, it has the following USES:


(1) the shards of glass as a combination of road, in the United States and Canada have several years of experiment confirmed that the broken glass as a way of packing is much simpler to use than other materials have reduce vehicle lateral sliding accident, right light reflection, pavement in good condition, snow melting fast, suitable for use of the advantages of low temperature place.


(2) mix crushed glass with building materials to make building prefabricated parts, building bricks and other building products. It has been proved by practice that the size accuracy and strength of the products made of organic materials are higher and the production cost is lower.


(3) the shattered glass is used to make building surface decorations, reflector materials, arts and crafts and clothing accessories, with good visual effects.


(4) the mixture of glass and plastic wastes and building materials can be made into synthetic building products.


3, furnace recycling. After the glass is pretreated, the glass container and glass fiber are fabricated by melting.


4. Material reuse. Recycled broken glass is used as an additive to glass products because the right amount of broken glass helps the glass to melt at a lower temperature.


5. Reuse. At present, the reuse scope of glass bottle packaging is mainly low value and large quantity of glass bottles. Such as beer bottles, soda bottles, soy sauce bottles, vinegar bottles and some cans and so on.


The comprehensive recovery and utilization of waste glass has important economic, environmental and social benefits. In order to reduce environmental pollution and save energy, China is gradually carrying out the work of recycling waste glass. The state shall formulate relevant rules and regulations, regulate civil behavior, and draw on foreign advanced experience when formulating industrial development plans, such as the requirement that the proportion of the total output of the products produced by using off-site broken glass shall be accounted for. Government related supporting policies to promote reducing trash, waste glass recovery dedicated boxes are placed in residential area, is responsible for the management and recycling free of charge, to help the sanitation department professional recycling waste will be recycled glass transportation to the treatment of the factory, freight settlement at the market price, reduce the burden of specialized enterprise building their own transport fleet already, and give full play to the sanitation professional transportation ability, let the market play a role. At the same time, the financial support and help to professional recycling enterprises.


At present, China has entered a new stage of waste recycling and reuse. In addition to establishing a standardized waste recycling market, we can also guide citizens to participate in the recycling through the new recycling methods and channels through the Internet + recycling method, and build a resident waste glass recycling and utilization system based on the Internet + recycling model.
