Welcome to the September 2022 issue of Glass International.

This month’s focus is digital glassmaking. In his first major interview since being appointed President of Bucher Emhart Glass, Matthias Kümmerle explains how he intends to embrace digital technology. Vertech creates eco-responsible glassmaking using plant supervision software and CelSian uses furnace simulation software to assist operations.

Elsewhere, we look at how the industry is moving towards net zero emissions. NSG, TECO, Sisecam, Krysteline and Schott explain how decarbonisation is at the forefront of their operations.

Technical articles on inspection, forming, furnaces and refractories are also highlighted. Among those included are Dr Guenther, SORG, Iris Inspections, Paneratech, Siemens & Sklostroj, Antares Vision Group, Techglass and Fusion Y Formas.
