Glass Service: defects training success in Istanbul

Martina Jezikova, GS, speaking at the training day

Glass Service (GS) and CQ Massó partnered with Şişecam last November to organise a glass defects and refractory training day for attendees at the Şişecam International Glass Conference in Istanbul.

The main conference was attended by 500 professionals from all over the world, interested in learning more about sustainable glass production.

The expert training session was delivered by Martina Jezikova, Filip Janos and Jerome Canaguier, focussing on the analysis and possible sources of glass defects, as well as refractory defects and quality control. The room was packed with 50 motivated delegates, who wanted to learn more about where glass defects may come from.

At the end of the conference, Christoph Jatzwauk, F.I.C. Managing Director, and Erik Muijsenberg, GS vice president, closed the GS sub-session with their presentation on how renewable energy in combination with hybrid melting concepts using more electric energy in the glass melting process can reduce CO2 emissions drastically while producing wonderful glass products.
