Currently, the Euro is up against the dollar 15% in the last year. That makes it more expensive. Cristalica has resisted changing the formulation containing the borax. I'm unaware of any additional equipment being built and the business is already subsidized which will be tough to sustain. The cullet does not seem to be getting a great reception with furnace makers and more than a few users.
So, I'm reasonably aware.
