Hot topics 2024 – what’s on the mind of the glass sector
glasstec 2024 presents and discusses solutions to current challenges within the glass sector. The main focus is on the issues “Circular economy”, “Digital technologies” and “Decarbonisation”. What options for change must the glass industry explore to unearth significant potentials for the future?
New approaches to solutions
Leading representatives as well as many top level talks at the glasstec conference and the innovation exhibit glass technology live demonstrate new approaches to solutions from research, science and industry.
Energy, resources and recycling in the glass industry
How can the use of energy and resources be reduced while the reuse rates along the glass value creation chain are increased? In focus: the topics of recycling and upcycling.
How to successfully connect standardised digital processes to a network that reaches beyond individual companies, so that self-learning machines can use unified data platforms as a basis for communication?
How can the energy intensive glass industry that is also highly dependent on natural gas achieve carbon neutrality by 2045? Focus on: The switch to new key technologies and sustainable resources to avoid process-dependent emissions.
