Soda-lime-silica glass containers constitute a significant proportion of the municipal waste-stream in every developed nation. Their full recycling potential is restricted by regional colour mismatch which limits the demand for green and amber waste container glass that can be effectively recycled as new bottles and jars. Various projects have been carried out to upcycle surplus soda-lime-silica glass into value-added materials such as ion-exchangers, aggregates and ceramics. In this study, waste green container glass was evaluated as a feedstock for the hydrothermal synthesis of a mixture of low-silica zeolites (sodalite (SOD) and cancrinite (CAN)) that have the potential to catalyse the industrially significant Knoevenagel condensation reaction.
