DOE Announces Glass Decarbonization Workshop

The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Industrial Efficiency & Decarbonization Office (IEDO) is inviting stakeholders from across the glass manufacturing supply chain (e.g., glass manufacturers, equipment manufacturers, raw material providers, etc.) to participate in a workshop on glass decarbonization on May 16th and 17th, 2024 at the Hyatt Pittsburgh International Airport hotel in Pittsburgh, PA.

The goal of the workshop is to identify key challenges, priorities, and opportunities for decarbonization of the glass manufacturing sector. Emphasis will be placed on technical challenges, as well as applied research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) opportunities at low to mid technology readiness levels (TRLs). During the workshop, IEDO leadership will provide an overview of the office and share the vision, strategy, and available resources to support innovations to improve energy efficiency and reduce the carbon footprint across U.S. manufacturing operations. Through facilitated discussion, participants will help inform IEDO’s priorities and future plans in supporting decarbonization of the glass manufacturing sector. 

This event is targeting participation from stakeholders with technical and/or practical expertise related to glass manufacturing, decarbonization technologies, and/or applied RD&D. The event has limited capacity and IEDO is requesting that no more than two representatives from each organization participate.
