November 6, 2000
The Glass Manufacturing Industry Council (GMIC) will conduct "Glass Melting Technologies of the Future" on Feb. 22, 2001, at the Washington Hilton and Towers in Washington, D.C. The event will seek to identify the "next generation" of melting technologies that will bring new energy efficiencies, reduced emissions and productivity to the industry. Overviews of the current state of glass melting technologies and future trends will be presented. A roundtable discussing will aim to develop consensus on the promising directions and the criteria for evaluating their potential. The GMIC is also soliciting presentations from glass company representatives, inventors, academics and others to discuss new technologies. One-page abstracts are due by Dec. 15, 2000.
