The diagram illustrates the process of recycling glass bottles and the process of new glass production.
Overall, it is noticeable that there are 5 steps in the process of glass recycling, beginning with the collection of used glass and ending with the moulding into new products. Also, there are 4 steps of the process of new glass production, from mixing and finishing with the glass containers.
In the first stage of the glass production process, all ingredients as sand, soda ash and limestone and other chemicals mixed together before melting in the glass furnace with very high temperature around 1500 degree and create molten glass blowing and shaped then we have the new glass productions it is ready to use.
Return to other process in the first stage of glass recycle we can see that, beginning with the collection of used glass from every houses to collected point and transported to the factory, after that sorting by color then wash and rinse them by water at high temperature and pressure for a thirty minutes to remove any impurities. Before crushing and melting in the oven at high temperature around 600 to 800 degree and running into the moulding and become a new production.
