According to the October 1999 issue of Modern Plastics, Owens-Illinois has
developed a process for glass bottle production which cuts bottle weight by
10% to 20% that achieves higher processing rates and lowe transportation
and feedstock costs in order to better compete with plastics, especially in
the market for water, beer, ketchup and mayonnaise (i.e. those markets
which have not yet already entrenched into plastics usage).
