Study: PET bottles have less impact than glass, aluminum

from Plastics News

The study, conducted by Franklin Associates, compared total energy, solid waste and greenhouse gas emissions per 100,000 ounces of soft drinks packaged in 20-ounce PET bottles, 8-ounce glass bottles or 12-ounce aluminum cans. The PET bottles showed lower greenhouse gas emissions, generated less waste and used less energy for their entire life cycle, the study said. more
