O-I Villotta is a Model of Energy-Efficient Glass Manufacturing
O-I Glass is reinventing the future of glass manufacturing through innovation. Our mission is to be the most sustainable producer of the most sustainable rigid packaging. O-I recently completed a series of multi-year investments at its plant in Villotta, Italy, transforming it into a world-class example of energy-efficient glass packaging manufacturing.
While the rest of the world continues to talk about autonomous vehicles, NASA recently landed one on another planet! On February 18th, 2021, the Mars 2020 mission delivered the Perseverance rover safely to the planet’s surface. The world watched, albeit not exactly in real-time, as the rover entered the planet’s atmosphere, descended and finally landed.
One of the world’s first hydrogen-powered aircraft, using global power leader Cummins’ fuel cell technology, was unveiled at the Stuttgart Airport late last year in Germany. Called the DLR-HY4, the four-seat airplane has successfully completed 30 2-hour test flights.
Glass packaging is made of three natural ingredients: silica sand, soda ash and limestone. The materials are mixed with recycled glass--called cullet. Cullet is the main ingredient in O-I's glass bottles and containers. Globally, our glass containers contain an average of 38 percent recycled glass. Globally, we've manufactured glass with as much as 100 percent recycled content. Together, these four ingredients: sand, soda ash, limestone, and recycled glass-make up the sustainable glass package for your favorite foods and beverages.
The ClimEx project developed highly accurate simulations of extreme weather events around the world. The ClimEx models allow scientists to predict the timing and path of weather events with greater speed and accuracy.
In the spring of 2019, an extreme flood struck the eastern region of Canada. Rivers ran where cars once drove. Thousands evacuated only to return to waterlogged homes filled with mud. Researchers called the weather event a “100-year flood,” meaning such a disaster has just a one-percent chance of occurring each year. But in a world racked by climate change, this statistic may soon be rendered meaningless. Just two years prior, a “100-year flood” struck the same flood-prone area.
