Reduction of both energy consumption and CO2 footprint while increasing production efficiency are key challenges for the glass industry.

The glass industry tackles these challenges by developing glass production processes enabling the use of sustainable fuels, adoption of CO2-lean raw materials, intensify glass recycling and improving energy efficiency of glass furnaces.

The challenge to cut energy consumption and CO2 emissions is not unique for the glass industry.

Other energy-intensive industries face the same issues with respect to process decarbonisation technologies, dedicated sensors, and control schemes.

A virtual GlassTrend seminar will focus on experience and technologies available and development in other industries. The aim is to learn from the experience.

To join the seminar which takes place on March 24th 2021, please register online via the website:

The event is meant exclusively for the GlassTrend members.
