The GlassTrend seminar ‘Innovative raw materials and processing technologies for sustainable glass production’ is hosted by Sibelco and takes place at ‘t Kristallijn, in Mol, Belgium, with transportation available from Brussels and Antwerp.
Knowledgeable glassmakers, raw materials producers and process engineers from all horizons are invited to provide insights to their latest innovations and to illustrate the positive impact of raw materials and processing technologies on glass production. Three main themes will be covered: Innovative raw materials, recycling technologies and new processing of raw materials.
