How long does it take for glass to decompose?
Glass can't rot. It is made of silicon and oxygen.
Glass doesnt decompose. It does take a long time to become a solid, but glass now will be glass in millions of years. Some types of glass can be made to decompose by adding chemicals similar to what etching does to glass. The term devitrication refers to the decompositition of glass but this is under forced chemical changes and not something that's going to happen in a natural state. Glass takes thousands of years to become a solid. Glass darkens as it ages as well. Lava glass or obsidian is glass found in nature and can be dated back to the beginning of the Earth, and is still glass.

We really don't know exactly how long it takes a glass bottle to decompose in a landfill, but we do know that it can break into smaller pieces eventually. Decomposition occurs when something breaks down into smaller parts or parts that are similar in composition. In a lanfill, where there are not many forces like wind and water that erode materials and special chemicals that can weaken glass, it is likely to take a million… Read More
