Sustainability in Glass Manufacturing

A Symposium organized by the Glass Manufacturing Industry Council

Thursday October 31, 2019 | 8:00 a.m. -4:00 p.m.

Sustainability has many definitions, typically with at least three main aspects, Environmental, Economic, and Social/Cultural.  This symposium will concentrate on sustainable glass manufacturing, defining “sustainable” as:  Available Batch Materials, Energy, Affordable Business Economics, Compatible with Process, and Safe for the environment, for manufacturing, and for the use of the products.

Sessions:  The Sustainability in Glass Manufacturing symposium will have four sessions, Environment, Energy, Technology, and Process.

Audience:  Glass Manufacturers, Refractory and Equipment Suppliers, Raw Material and Energy Suppliers, Design Engineers, Process Engineers, Academics, and Glass Researchers, Technology, Process Design, Analysis, and Improvement.

Objectives: The participants should come away from the symposium with knowledge of the current state of glass manufacturing technology and both the ongoing and anticipated developmental efforts to improve the sustainability of glass manufacturing.
