In Italy the production of hollow glass represents more than 82% of the total glass production and recycled glass is one of the most important materials, as it allows to obtain great environmental benefits as well as a reduction in energy consumption. The present paper has carried out an LCA study. The goal of the analysis has been to analyse the environmental performance within the whole life cycle system of the hollow glass production to identify possible alternative scenario for reducing the environmental impacts, in particular the global warming potential emissions.

Abstract

In Italy the production of hollow glass represents more than 82% of the total glass production and recycled glass is one of the most important materials, as it allows to obtain great environmental benefits as well as a reduction in energy consumption. The present paper has carried out an LCA study. The goal of the analysis has been to analyse the environmental performance within the whole life cycle system of the hollow glass production to identify possible alternative scenario for reducing the environmental impacts, in particular the global warming potential emissions. The scenario has considered the hypothesis to increase cullet post consumer use in the current production system from regional supply.
