"Close the Glass Loop": Intense cooperation planned with European municipalities

09 Jul 2020 − 

With the launch of the "Close the Glass Loop" initiative, the European "glass" supply chain has launched an action plan that aims to achieve a collection and recycling rate of 90% by 2030.

This puts the industry well above the 75% required by 2030 within EU member states. In 2017, 76% of glass packaging in Europe was already collected and recycled, with the figures being borne by countries with very high rates, while other markets were still well below the required figures. Sweden, which already has a collection rate of 98%, is currently preparing for a decline in cullet quality.
