WHAT IS LCA? A systematic way of analyzing impact of a product on environment, during their entire life cycle is called Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). It measures and assesses potential impact of a product on environment. This study was conducted in India to evaluate the environmental profile of glass, that is - understanding environmental impact of container glass, assessing it right from raw material extraction to manufacturing and end-of-life recycling, to identify and investigate scope for improvement for glass container manufacturing.In the study, site-specific data representative of current technology used in India of reference year 2016-17 were collected and analyzed for container glass.
Through this analysis it was seen that Indian glass manufacturing process is highly energy efficient and adopts best in the world technologies. Also, environmental footprints of glass can be further reduced by 50% if it recycled by 75% and reduced weight by 20%.
