How is laminated glass recycled?
Companies interested in helping the environment divert their damaged glass from landfills and work with Recycle My Windshield to create a solution.
The patented process liberates the glass from the PVB interlayer so both are transformed into raw materials that are used in manufacturing new products.
Glass is one of the most recyclable materials in the world, and also one of the least biodegradable.
Damaged glass can sit in landfills for hundreds of thousands of years, unless businesses and consumers make the decision to to recycle instead of throwing it away.
Recycled windshields provide many benefits, not only for the environment but also in making new products more environmentally friendly.
The glass is liberated from the PVB interlayer and becomes "cullet", small particles of glass which are used by industrial companies to produce new fiberglass building insulation for homes and offices.
Every five tons of recycled glass used in the manufacturing of insulation saves one ton of greenhouse gas emissions.
The PolyVinyl Butyral (PVB) interlayer is reprocessed into advanced raw materials which are used by industrial companies, such as carpet manufacturers.
The recycled PVB replaces PolyVinyl Chloride (PVC) in carpet tiles. This helps make them recyclable and more environmentally friendly.
