Session 3: Challenges in glass manufacturing

Industrially fabricated glass is one of the most important materials used in society. New applications and compositions, more stringent quality requirements, increasing costs and compliance with environmental regulations drive constant innovation in glass chemistry, equipment and processes. New laboratory research and modeling approaches have dramatically increased understanding of glass chemistry, glass melting and product forming processes,  and improved energy efficiency and equipment design. This session will cover recent developments in:

 

  • Physics and chemistry of glass melting and forming – experiments and modeling
  • Energy efficiency – combustion, heat transfer, and new energy saving technologies
  • Furnace design and process control – sensors, flue gas chemistry, emissions
  • Corrosion and wear – refractories and electrodes
  • Post-forming treatments – finishing, surface treatments, films, etc.
  • New glass melting and forming concepts
