The Glass Manufacturing Industry Council (GMIC), in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Industrial Technologies (OIT), has launched a new program. Designed to encourage glass company members of the trade association to conduct small-scale research projects (less than $25,000 expense), the program will use the expertise, facilities and cutting-edge technology equipment at any one of the U.S.'s 17 National laboratories. On an annual basis, each glass manufacturing member, using a simplified form available from the GMIC, will be eligible to apply for a research project to be carried out at the lab of their choice. Manufacturers will be encouraged to identify a problem or challenge in their operation that they would have difficulty resolving on their own.
