The Recycled Glass Project assists manufacturers and artists interested in evaluating the use of recycled glass as a raw material. By enhancing California's glass recycling markets, the project is working to strengthen local recycling programs, create jobs, conserve energy and landfill space and reduce air pollution.

The Recycled Glass Project is spearheaded by the Center for Environmental Economic Development (CEED), a catalyst for environmentally sustainable development. Two nationally recognized recycling market development experts head CEED's project team. Ed Boisson has over 16 years experience promoting recycling industry growth, and is the project manager and business assistance liaison. Robert Kirby is one of the nation's foremost authorities on the use of recycled glass in kiln applications, and is the workshop trainer and lead technical consultant.
