SYSTEM ENERGY AND RECYLING: A STUDY OF THE CONTAINER INDUSTRY.

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

A complete energy analysis has been done for beverage systems which utilize returnable and throwaway containers. The study includes beer, soft drinks, and milk, in cans, glass bottles, paper, and plastic containers. In general, the total system resource energy is significantly higher for throwaway systems, varying from 3. 3 times as much for soft drinks in bottles to 1. 6 times as much for milk in paper throwaways. The study also includes dollar costs which show the soft drink glass throwaway container system to be about twice as expensive as the returnable system.
