Hawaii State Auditor Releases Oceanit’s Glass Recycling Study


Environmental sustainability is important to Oceanit, which is always considering how to bring science and technology to some of the world’s most pressing sustainability problems — including something as common as “glass.” In 2014, Oceanit was asked by the Hawaii State Auditor’s office to examine alternatives to shipping non-deposit glass containers out of state for recycling. The study received acclaim in the press for its in-depth analysis of the feasibility of various local uses for post-consumer glass.
