Angolan container glass plant Embalvidro has produced its first liquid glass gobs.

The company has been heating up its 180t/day Sorg furnace since October 29.

The Embalvidro glass manufacturing facility will primarily produce beer bottles in amber and emerald green colours.

Early next year it will begin to also produce soft drinks bottles in flint glass.

An extended interview with Embalvidro Director, Antonio Ruivo, is in the November issue of Glass International, out now.
