Glass is an extremely environmentally friendly material simply because of the raw materials it uses: sand, soda and lime. These basic materials are abundant in nature, so scarce resources are not consumed in the production of glass. We obtain these materials from regional partners and thus make our contribution to reducing necessary transport to a minimum. With the in-house recycling of the glass shards that occur during glass production and the use of processed third-party shards that are purchased from glass recycling companies, Glashütte Lamberts makes a significant contribution to ensuring that glass that has already been produced and is no longer functional is reused within the economic cycle. Our flue gas filter system for keeping the air clean is state-of-the-art and in some cases significantly below the emission limits required by law. We use natural gas as fuel, which burns much cleaner than other energy sources and therefore causes less fine dust pollution. We are constantly improving our combustion technology in order to use the energy used more efficiently.
The water used for cooling purposes in the production process is collected and reused. When it comes to the packaging materials to be used, the criterion of recyclability is also very carefully considered. We pack in wooden boxes, which also come from local production. An internal waste separation and avoidance system makes a further contribution to environmentally friendly behavior. LambertsGlas® is more than glass. It is a product with a green conscience.
Colored glass is an important component of modern architecture and offers numerous advantages that are of great importance from both an aesthetic and a sustainability point of view.
Handmade one-of-a-kind glass is a timeless material that often lasts for centuries due to its durability. Unlike other building materials, they do not lose value or beauty, but retain their elegance and charm over time.
In addition, flat and cast glass is extremely versatile and can be used in a variety of applications, from facade and roof design to artistic uses in stained glass, artwork, windows, doors and sculptures.
Another important aspect of flat glasses is their sustainability. They can be made partly from recycled glass and are recyclable. As a result, they help conserve natural resources and reduce waste, which is a serious problem in today's world. Because of these properties, flat glass is an environmentally friendly material that has become indispensable in modern architecture and art.
However, let's also highlight the beauty and importance of handmade glasses and appreciate their role in the design of buildings. Their timeless elegance and enduring properties make them an indispensable material for architects, builders and artists alike. We recommend the use of flat glass in new construction projects to enable aesthetic and environmentally friendly design, which is of great importance in today's world.
