The development of glass products

Glass products are generally used to hold liquids. The raw materials are silica sand, soda ash, dolomite and other materials that have little impact on the environment. Even if it is discarded at will, it will not have a major impact on the human body and the environment like white pollution.It first appeared in ancient Egyptian ruins in the form of small glass spheres. According to the historical timeline, dating back 4,000 years, the ancient Egyptians regarded glass as a treasure. However, glassware really started to develop in 1906,At that time, the United States produced high-transparency and high-quality glass with its high degree of industrialization, which was used in car windows, windows, handicrafts and other fields.

Discarding glass bottles at will has little impact on the earth’s environment and will not endanger human health, unless under high temperature conditions, glass bottles cause forest fires due to concentrated sunlight.

Environmental Impact of Glass Bottles

In the process of human industrialization, the level of science and technology has been continuously improved, and the processing process has been accelerated. Glass has also changed from a small glass ball to a glass product commonly used by people. The mining and manufacturing of glass raw materials have a great impact on forest vegetation.It is easy to destroy the ecological balance of the forest, affect the normal life of animals, reduce species diversity, over-exploit glass raw materials, pay too much attention to economic benefits, easily cause environmental pollution problems, and endanger human health.

The manufacture of glass bottles requires the use of energy for high-temperature processing, which easily produces greenhouse gas CO2, affects the local air environment, and intensifies the global greenhouse effect

Human beings need to protect the environment. While developing the economy, protect the natural environment, reduce the cost of environmental governance, reduce the impact of plastic waste on marine life, and let marine life return to the blue sea. Enterprises should mine glass raw materials reasonably.To formulate a standard glass process and actively purify the waste water and waste produced by the glass process, individuals should start from small things, pay attention to the impact of human behavior on nature, and actively protect the ecological environment.
