The recycled bottles analyzed in this study were the 12oz amber glass bottles from Lost Coast Brewery located in Humboldt County, California. These bottles were produced by the company Saxco based out of Sacramento, California, and were transported to Humboldt State University Lost Coast Brewery in ArcataEureka, California. It was estimated that 20% of all the bottles purchased were recycled. This is a user input that we assumed based on dialog with Lost Coast Brewery. As recycled bottles are made into bottles again, the melting process was found to be similar to creating a virgin bottle. It takes the same technology and emits a little under that of a virgin bottle. Further, the transportation was less in a recycled bottle for one reason being distance. The two go through similar processes we found.
