My problem with many of the Chinese cullet suppliers ( or billets) was inconsistency of expansion from one load to the next. Back when Seattle batch was importing cullet, I kept getting it into the shop for evaluation and it was disheartening to see a serious (7 points) variance from one container to the next. That indeed killed it as a product.

One of the things about Eveline's venture is consistency of quality but they don't sell cullet. They considered it but the circumstances of west coast ports made it too dicey to pursue.
Where are we going and why am I in this basket?
