There is a growing need for solutions that offer a holistic answer to such challenges. We have to adapt and try to mitigate both the pressures of smaller prices and ecological regulatives. That is why we present weight optimization of glass as one of solutions to this multi-faceted issue. New production methods make it possible to manufacture thinner, lightweight glass containers.
