Glass International Issue
October 2011

October 2011

October 2011 sees a special edition of Glass International, as it features the Glassman Turkey 2011 catalogue, including a guide to exhibitors, floorplan, and a products and services guide. There is also a preview for the next Glassman Latin America, which will be held in Mexico City on 15th and 16th May 2012.

With a focus on the use of cullet in glassmaking, we take a look at the recycling of glass in the UK with an article from the recently appointed Head of Container Affairs for British Glass, as well as examining the current situation across the rest of Europe.

A feature on process control includes details of a laser-engraving machine aimed at offering total glass traceability, while a report on using calumite to reduce furnace emissions is another highlight of the issue.
