Nothing is lost, nothing is created, everything is transformed.

Antoine Laurent de Lavoisier

At SEVAM, we are convinced that environmental impact reduction and glass valorization are two indissociable elements. Today, it is undeniable that glass is the appropriate material for sustainable development. Glass is reusable and 100% recyclable; it’s the only packaging material that can be remelted to infinity to make new products without any loss of quality, purity or clarity.

Ecological stakes of glass recycling

For many years, our company has embraced an ecological approach based on waste recycling. Our glass is recycled at 100%.

The use of recycled glass (cullet) allows

A reduction in the natural resources consumption, cullet is a substitute for raw materials (sand, limestone and soda).

An energy saving, the cullet is heated to a lower temperature than natural raw materials, this in order to be melted and allow fuel reduction of 40 kg per ton of cullet used.

A CO2 emissions limitation into the atmosphere (1 ton of cullet allows to avoid the direct emission of 250 kg to 300 kg of CO2).

A reduction in waste amount by creating a virtuous circle of solid waste issued from the glass packaging retrieval.
