American Glass Container Association is actively promoting glass bottle innovation

The container maker's union Last year, Leone Industrial Group joined the Glass Packaging Association (GPI) as a member unit with Anchor Glass, Gallo Glass, Kelman Bottles, Owens-Illinois Ltd, Saint-Gobain Containers Ltd and Vitro Packaging companies, etc. are linked together. In the half of 2009, the output of the glass bottle industry in the northern United States was close to the production capacity. According to GPI data, January-September shipments (160,588 thousand Luo) were 3.4% lower than the January-September 2008 shipments (176,619 thousand Luo). The output of glass bottles from January to September 2009 (160,836 thousand troy ounces) decreased by 4% compared with January-September (176,619 thousand troy). Glass bottle production and shipments are based on thousandths of gross, with 1,000 kilograms equaling 144,000.
In order to improve the recycling awareness and recycling of glass bottles, the North American glass bottle industry made unremitting efforts in 2009 to improve the collection of recycled glass in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and reduce raw material consumption. , Extend the life of glass melting furnaces, save energy, and achieve the target of 50% recycling efficiency in 2013. There are 50 glass bottle manufacturers and 74 sets of reclaimed glass processing equipment in the United States.
If the US glass bottle regeneration rate is doubled (28% in 2007), manufacturers will be able to use 50% recycled glass or broken glass to produce new glass bottles, saving enough energy for 21,978 households to use for one year. Each month, 181,550 tons of waste can be picked from garbage.
The goal of 2013 - using 50% broken glass in the manufacture of new glass bottles, was prompted by the 2009 Glass Recycling Week initiated by the Glass Packaging Association. In more than 50 educational and public events in 22 states, more than 20 tons of reusable glass bottles have been collected, environmental protection concepts for recycled glass bottles have been established, and Colorado and Indian states have become permanent glass bottles. Canister collection site.
In 2010, the glass bottle industry will work harder to promote the recycling of US glass bottles. It includes on the basis of existing recycling and deposit plans, on-road recycling plans and extended recycling yards.
Make changes Some materials are more conducive to "health" than others? Do we use reusable or reusable containers for packaging and have a different impact on the environment? For these issues, the consumer replied: Yes. Researchers report that consumers tend to prefer glass packaging, consumers care about their personal, family health and environmental protection. In fact, almost 60% of consumers believe that glass packaging is "the most suitable for a healthy lifestyle." 83.1% of consumers think that plastic packaging will leak chemicals. Only 11.9% of consumers think that glass packaging will also leak chemicals. This is the result of a telephone survey conducted by Newton Marketing Research Institute in Normandy, Oklahoma, in conjunction with Dr. Doyle Yoon in April and July 2009. The limit error of the survey was +/-3.7%.
The survey also found that people have a high degree of correlation between their ideas for recycling and their behavior. If someone thinks recycling is good for the environment, almost 83% of them may be doing recycling. Most consumers (78%) know that glass jars can be returned for recycling and packaged in the same way. Clearly shows that Americans want a more green life.
Too Much More Consumers are increasingly demanding simplification of fully recyclable packaging. In response, the glass packaging industry responded by producing the same top-quality, 100% pure, less glass-coated glass with less glass. Saint-Gobain container company is currently investing in the ECO series. The production line produces 750 ml high quality wine bottles. The design of the three bottles—revolution, evolution, and inspiration—uses 15% fewer raw materials, each bottle of which produces 25% of the carbon dioxide, and the inland transportation also occupies less than 25% of the carbon dioxide. According to Katie Gerber, market manager of Saint-Gobain Containers' wine bottle division, “The konjac pyroxenate is 4%, which means that the winery can send seven cars to save one car.”
Bonterra's vineyard is expanding its organic and ecological wine lines in an all-round way. In order to adapt itself to natural and reliable brands, it decided to switch to glass bottles. In 2009, Spiezia Organics, a skin care company, redesigned its packaging to change sustainability into glass bottles for sustainability. As a result, Spiezia Organics can save 12% on secondary packaging.
In the current economic and social instability, users are also looking for comfortable and safe packaging. Many users choose glass packaging. For example, several milk fields have re-selected glass bottles of milk and other dairy products in order to meet consumer demand and environmental protection goals.
In response to consumer demand, Organic Meadow, one of the largest dairy companies in Canada, celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2009 with the launch of a new glass bottle called “Traditional”. The Oberweis Dairy Farm re-uses glass bottles to increase the rewards for users returning glass bottles to show that it is an environmentally friendly dairy farm. Shatto's family milk company uses simple and pure glass milk cans, a nostalgic package, to show the freshness of the product inside the tank.
Traders Point Creamery, which had been packaging their products in plastic cups until the beginning of last year, now packs them in glamorous clear glass wide-mouth bottles. All milk and yogurt produced by Traders Point Creamery are also packaged in glass bottles. On the basis of success, many other companies have followed suit. The company is convinced that using glass packaging can give consumers pure products without plastic contamination and show packaging. According to the European Glass Container Federation (FEVE), if brand owners respond to EU consumer demand, there will be more milk and juice repacked in glass. Dominique Tombeur, FEVE chairman, said that in April, respondents who had adjusted private ownership rates for 6200 consumers in 12 EU member states preferred to buy glass-wrapped milk, only 5% Say what they might do. 45% of the respondents prefer to buy glass-wrapped juices, compared with only 14% of those who originally liked glass packaging.
Closing the cycle Consumers are increasingly willing to buy, take responsibility for the environment and work hard to achieve the company's products. Companies and industries that can form "closed loops" or recycle as many products as possible can benefit from reduced raw material usage, energy savings, and emissions.
According to the BBMG Company's 2009 Consumer Consciousness Report, a national survey of 2,000 adults (11) Zheng 7% of Americans believe that the purchase of products from socially and environmentally responsible companies can make positive changes in these companies. . Most Americans (nine in ten) think of themselves as conscious consumers.
According to a report issued by the US Environmental Protection Agency in September 2009, 42% of the U.S. greenhouse gas comes from the production, use, and disposal of commodities, and it is believed that there will be a substantial reduction in opportunities through source conservation and recycling.
In 2006, recycling was only used to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases equivalent to 183 million metric tons of CO2. In order to reduce the environmental impact of glass, the glass industry will work hard to encourage consumers to recycle glass bottles, request that the recycling system provide better quality broken glass, and use it even more when producing new glass bottles and cans. More broken glass. It is expected that in 2010, the glass bottle industry will continue to increase the amount of recycled glass used to produce lighter products that are more environmentally friendly.
More US Recycling The Hartman Group conducted a survey of 1,600 consumers in 2009. The survey found that the characteristics of the packaging are that most of the packaging materials are recyclable. Three quarters of consumers believe that it is very important or important to return packaging to the market through the collection box at the roadside. Consumers also put up to 67% of the containers of regenerants in the recycling bins. Consumers are recycling their glass bottles. In July 2009, the Newton Marketing Research Institute surveyed 750 families and found that 82% of these households were recycling their glass bottles. Most of the major adjustments (69%) were collected through roadside collection programs. Another 23% of reclaimed glass was collected on-site at the recycling site.
These are not good news for the glass industry, but some of the glass collected by the roadside is collected in a single collection bin, which collects all of the recyclables so that the glass is Pollution, reduced quality. In addition to the roadside collection, in order to achieve and improve the glass industry's goal of using 50% recycled glass in 2013, glass bottle manufacturers expect new partners and initiatives to obtain higher quality glass. In South Seattle, Wash., the cooperation between the Saint-Gobain container plant, the nation’s largest wine bottle manufacturer, and eCullet, which develops the technology for modern recycled glass dark room sorting, will assist in the processing of recycled glass and the use of recycled glass to produce new glass bottles. The amount of regenerated glass is increased from 17% to 35%, and there is a potential for further improvement. eCullet is willing to use Seattle's local roadside recycled glass and materials from Vancouver, the BC Bottle Deposit program.
In Fort Collins, Colorado, and Kansas City, Missouri, aggressive recovery yards use simple methods to ensure high-quality broken glass. In Larimer, Fort Collins, and Loveland, the "Be world class, sort your glass" project, in partnership with Rocky Mountain Bottlemaking, has doubled the number of recycling yards, which is expected to reach 350 Ton.
In late 2009, Kansas City, Missouri established a network of 60 glass recycling facilities in the metro area to handle non-roadside collected glass. The local brewing company cooperated with DST Systems Co., Ltd. and UMB Finance Inc. to form Ripple Glass Co., Ltd., and developed a recycling system and modern processing equipment. They plan to recycle 7,000 tons in the first year, and recover 15,000 to 20,000 tons each year in less than three years, providing a clear model for other communities.
Bars, shops, brigades, and conference centers in California, Colorado, Georgia, Indiana, Nevada, North Carolina, and Texas are important channels for expanding recycled glass , And is the main source of dry Q recycled glass. In 2008, North Carolina took the lead in legislation requiring all ABC licensees to recycle their containers and recover 45,000 tons of glass in the year. Faced with the huge demand for recycled glass, the City of Houston, Texas, said we were able to recycle and asked to recycle glass from bars, shops and high-rise apartments. Most sold to the Longhorn Glass Group for the production of new bottles by Anheuser-Busch.
The hotel has been adding glass bottles for recycling in 2009 and is expected to be more in 2010. They are searching for disposable cardboard, food and recycling bottles. They have very little rubbish and many hotel waste is close to zero. For example, in 2008, Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino and THE Hotel recycled almost 120 tons of glass, and in 2009 they plan to turn over and propose to their guests how to “Riding the Green Wave”.
In 2009, Atlanta, the capital city of Georgia, established a zero-waste zone in the urban area to drive more urban imitations. To date, there are more than a dozen places that produce a lot of rubbish, including Ruth's Chris Steak House, Hyatt Regency Atlanta, and some big bars and shops, which have pledged to recycle 40-80% of their garbage. There is a large amount of glass, which accounts for about 80% of the weight of their containers.
Looking ahead to 2010, it will be the establishment of more cooperation projects and development plans, which will produce more and better recycled glass from the community, retailers and other large-scale places. Glass manufacturers need to regenerate glass to reduce energy consumption and meet stricter emission standards. This will stimulate competition for high-quality glass and open the door to more innovations for valuable daily products.
Legislation The Congress in 2009 promoted legislation on greenhouse gas (GHG) and its emissions. The House of Representatives passed HR 2454, the U.S. Clean Energy and Security Act, which establishes a 'cap and trade' system to control carbon emissions. The goal is to reach 17% by 2020? Year?p row 83%. It is expected that the Senate and the Congress will continue to debate on climate issues in 2010 or later.
In 2009, there were more than 12 states that proposed legislation for expansion and deposit plans. One motivating factor is that some unvoiced tickets are set aside. Several states want to return a large number of invalid tickets, partially or in full, to state general funds for balancing the budget.
California, Hawaii, Iowa, New York, Oregon, and Vermont each proposed plans to expand their existing bottle deposits.
Connecticut expanded its bottle for 2009 and entered into a container deposit plan. The State of New York has also passed legislation to increase the 'handling fee' of containers, and has expanded the number of containers including water containers. .
The focus of the expansion is mainly on plastic water bottles, non-carbonated materials, glass-wrapped tea and juice bottles, and several tickets. Florida, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, Washington, and West Virginia Sub-states have proposed new container deposit legislation, including glass bottles. It has also been suggested to study and analyze existing plans to help determine the vitality of consumer deposit legislation in their states.
In 2010 and beyond, the state’s budget and regeneration rate were promoted, and the container’s deposit legislation was continuously promoted. Glass producers continued to pay attention to the state’s legislation to encourage and support them and provide a lot of good quality products without creating new financial obstacles. glass.
