The Glassman conference theme will be ‘Energy efficiency and environmental solutions in the glass industry.’
Dedicated sessions will discuss how the glass production process is becoming more environmentally aware and how manufacturers are implementing new processes in order to reduce costs and comply with changing legislation.
With international speakers from across the industry invited to present, this conference will address the major issues faced when achieving sustainable primary glass manufacturing.
