The first video of Ardagh Glass Packaging's furnace fill-up at its Nigel, South Africa plant glass manufacturing facility has been made public.

The video was taken today (November 30) with the level of molten glass in the furnace at 350mm, which is about halfway.

The fill-up introduces the raw materials into the heated furnace and starts to slowly melt them.

The company is planning to start first glass production this Saturday, 2 December 2023.
