Under the green economy, glass packaging products such as glass bottles may have new opportunities

At present, "white pollution" has increasingly become a social issue of general concern to all countries in the world. One or two things can be seen from my country's increasing pressure on environmental protection. Under the severe survival challenge of air pollution, the country has focused its development perspective on the green economy. Enterprises also pay more attention to the development and promotion of green products. Market demand and social responsibility together gave birth to a batch of responsible enterprises pursuing green production methods.

Glass adapts to the requirements of glass packaging marketization and greening. It is called a new type of packaging material due to its environmental protection, good airtightness, high temperature resistance, and easy sterilization, and it occupies a certain share in the market. On the other hand, with the increase of residents' awareness of environmental protection and resource conservation, glass packaging containers have gradually become government-encouraged packaging materials, and consumers' recognition of glass packaging containers has also been increasing.

 The so-called glass packaging container, as the name implies, is a transparent container made of molten glass frit by blowing and molding. Compared with traditional packaging, it has the advantages of less material property changes, good corrosion and acid corrosion resistance, good barrier and sealing effect, and can be reproduced in the oven. Therefore, it is widely used in beverages, medicines and other fields. In recent years, although the demand for glass packaging containers in the international market has shown a downward trend, glass packaging containers are still growing rapidly in terms of packaging and storage of various types of alcohol, food seasonings, chemical reagents and other daily necessities.

At the national level, with the continuous advancement of “supply-side structural reforms” and “tightening battles for environmental protection” and stricter access to the industry, my country has introduced an access policy for the daily-use glass industry to regulate the production, operation and investment behavior of the daily-use glass industry. Promote energy-saving, emission-reduction and clean production, and guide the daily glass industry to develop into a resource-saving and environment-friendly industry.


 At the market level, in order to adapt to the fierce competition in the international packaging market, some foreign glass packaging container manufacturers and scientific research departments continue to introduce new equipment and adopt new technologies, which has made a lot of progress in the manufacture of glass packaging containers. The overall output of glass packaging containers maintained continuous growth. According to statistics from Qianzhan.com, with the growth of consumption of various alcohols, it is expected that the output in 2018 will rise to 19,703,400 tons. 

    Objectively speaking, the overall scale of the glass packaging container manufacturing industry continues to grow, and the national production capacity of glass packaging containers is rapidly increasing. It should be noted that glass packaging containers also have some shortcomings, and easy to break is one of the shortcomings. Therefore, the impact resistance index of glass bottles and cans has become an important test item. 

     Under certain conditions of ensuring the strength of glass packaging, reducing the weight-to-volume ratio of glass bottles is to improve their greenness and economy. At the same time, attention should also be paid to the lightweight of glass packaging. Glass bottle packaging quickly occupied part of the market with a series of physical and chemical properties such as chemical stability, air tightness, smoothness and transparency, high temperature resistance, and easy disinfection of glass packaging. In the future, glass packaging containers are bound to have broader development prospects.
