Glass International Issue
The September 2020 issue of Glass International includes interviews with leading glass manufacturers after furnaces openings from O-I, Consol Glass and Guardian Glass.
We have exclusive interviews with Dale Carolin from Consol and Guus Boekhoudt of Guardian and bring the news from the O-I opening at Gironcourt, France.
Elsewhere we have an update on how the soda ash sector has fared during the crisis from IHS Markit, while Wiegand-Glas has unveiled a climate neutral light glass wine bottle.
Energy efficiency is a key topic in glassmaking and we report on how an O-I plant in Italy reduced its energy consumption. Meanwhile Italy's Stara Glass discusses the Life Sugar project which aims to reduce energy consumption in glassmaking.
Poland's CP Glass discusses its own waste heat recovery solution, while Heinz-Glas, in collaboration with Siemens, highlights a uniform process control system for batch house and melting ends.
Other notable contributions come from Heye International, Emhart, PaneraTech, Antonini, HFT, SEFPRO, PSR, Applied Vision, Imperial College London, VDMA, Glass Problems and Cortex, as well as the regular History column from Prof John Parker.
