    The author discusses the basic principles of glass melting and the role of cullet or reclaimed glass from solid waste systems in glass melting. He provides limits or quality specifications for reclaimed glass and explains the reasons for the strictness of the specifications. The author is optimistic for the possible development of new technology for upgrading the reclaimed glass to a more widely acceptable material for reuse in glass manufacture.
