Three new reports by WRAP

The Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) has publicised three reports on its website which it says highlight the fast pace of growth in the UK’s end markets for recycled glass and the scope for further development.

The reports are as follows.

-Recycled Glass Market Study and Standards Review (ISBN 1 84405 049 1) is an updated publication published by WRAP which assesses the primary and alternative markets for recycled glass and the quality requirements, specifications and current capacity for each application.

-The second report, entitled Foam Glass Market Survey (ISBN 1 84405 054 8) and prepared by the Building Research Establishment (BRE), focuses on the use of recycled glass in foam glass manufacture.

-Waste Flat Glass from the Demolition and Replacement Window Industries (ISBN 1 84405 053 X) is the title of the third report, which is also prepared by the BRE. The report was commissioned to identify sources of waste flat glass and timber and unplasticised polyvinylchloride (PVC-U) profiles that are suitable for collection and recycling. The research highlights the substantial quantities of glass and other materials that are currently being sent to landfill.

WRAP is a not-for-profit company supported by funding from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA), the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) and the devolved administrations of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

All three reports are available on the WRAP website at
