O-I, eCullet to team up on glass recycling venture

March 8, 2013 | Glass News

The companies will form Glass to Glass, which will invest in glass-sorting equipment that will improve the process of sorting recycled glass from paper, metal and plastic, which often leaves glass too contaminated to reuse in manufacturing. - Glass International online
