In this paper, through suitable energetic balances, we have quantified the energy saving obtainable by reducing the quantity of raw materials (glass) feeding the process, through the closed-loop recycling, of the cathode ray tube glass that reached the end of its life cycle. For this purpose we adopted a methodology called the FIAI Method. Such a method consists of the introduction of two parameters aiming at controlling both the practicability of the investment concerning the environmental improvement (FI) and the advantage that such intervention causes as regards environmental impact and general energy saving (AI). © 2005 WIT Press.
