What’s important to note about glass is that not all glass is the same. The most common type of glass is soda-lime-silica, which is used for glass bottles and jars. There are three other types of glass, all of which are re-processed differently.
Borosilicate glass – Used exclusively for heat-resistant equipment, such as cooking equipment.
Lead glass – Reserved for decorative glassware such as windows, drinking glasses, and ornaments.
Glass fibre – Insulation, such as glass wool, and fibre optic cabling use glass fibre. Glass fibre has also been used to form fibreglass, which has had many uses over the years.
