Welcome to the June 2022 issue of Glass International.

This month’s focus is decarbonisation. Linde tests its oxy-fuel burner with hydrogen and ethanol, Sefpro looks at refractory solutions to decarbonise the industry, and the topic is further explored in the float glass industry. Renewable glass manufacturing was also the focus of this year’s Furnace Solutions event in St Helens, UK, which is reviewed.
