Flat glass

Flat glass first appeared in Roman times. Called cast glass at the time, it was the first "glass" solution to insulating the openings of the richest dwellings.

Part of the family of glass manufactured in sheet form, raw glass for recycling comes mainly from the building and automative sectors.

It is therefore subject to contamination specific to these fields of activity and requires a particular treatment process.

This type of glass is often heavily processed (laminated, assembled into double glazing, coated, etc.).

The waste present in flat glass often consists of metal and plastic materials, but also rubber, silicone or wood.
