O-I Glass is leveraging innovation and technology to drive expansion and meet its customers’ growing needs, bringing glass packaging where they need it and when they need it in a sustainable and cost-effective manner. Here is where MAGMA (Modular Advanced Glass Manufacturing Asset) technology — O-I’s revolutionary, flexible, modular glass production system — comes in. MAGMA will set new standards in glass manufacturing, allowing us to use renewable sources of energy and more recycled content while reducing greenhouse gas emissions and waste.
O-I Glass is investing in manufacturing with an all-new MAGMA facility in Bowling Green, Kentucky, USA, which will be ready in mid-2024. This marks an important milestone for O-I, serving a new market with a state-of-the-art facility, the first new one in almost two decades. The facility will be enabled by advanced technologies and innovative processes, leading glass manufacturing into the future.
