PCR glass: In the wake of Verescence, Pochet du Courval, Heinz Glas and the Zignago Vetro Group enter the loop

Verescence was the first glassmaker to offer with Infini, in 2008 (at the time SGD) recycled glass (up to 25%), from household glass recovery. Since then, the glassmaker has increased the quality of recycled glass with its Infini Neo version in 2015 resulting from a more selective recovery (flint glass).

While, Zignago Vetro will soon be launching Green Glass, recycled glass containers for cosmetic purposes. A first line was already launched last year in partnership with Eurovetrocap.

The site, whose construction should start late this year should be commissioned in 2021.
