Gerresheimer uses 40% post-consumer glass in first half of 2020

, Gerresheimer Glass

Gerresheimer’s plant in Momignies, Belgium used 40% of PCR (post-consumer recycling) glass in its industrial glass production in the first six months of 2020.

RDC environment, a Belgian-based consultancy firm for environmental studies and analyses, certified after thorough examination that the quantity of PCR glass used in relation to the quantity of glass packaging sold corresponds to a recycling or PCR glass content of over 40 percent.

"We are very happy about this certificate. It confirms that our commitment to greater sustainability in cosmetics glass production using recycled cullet is the right way forward," said Nicola Balena, VP Global Business Management Cosmetic Moulded Glass at Gerresheimer.

The check was carried out on criteria established by the European Container Glass Federation (FEVE).

Gerresheimer has already been committed to the use of recycled glass for 10 years and, in collaboration with customers, has developed a high-quality cosmetics glass for the production of flacons, jars and numerous other cosmetics bottles.

Its share of recycled cullet has been steadily increased in recent years and now stands at an exceptionally high level of over 40 percent.

"We feel committed to the recycling economy and if something can be successfully reproduced over and over again, it is glass," adds Mr Balena.
