Glass International Issue
September 2011

September 2011

September 2011 sees a special edition of Glass International; one that will be distributed at the 72nd Conference on Glass Problems in Columbus, Ohio on 18th and 19th October. The issue contains a guide to all companies participating in the conference's accompanying tabletop exhibition.

A preview for another important industry event - Glassman Turkey 2011 - is also provided, ahead of October's official show issue. This is accompanied by a focus on Turkey's growing container glass market.

Since solar glass production remains on the rise, we take a look at the current market situation, as well as the latest technologies on the market, in a dedicated solar glass feature. A profile of Clemens Miller, the newly appointed president of NSG Group's building products division, is another highlight of the issue.
