Glass Futures is working with the global glass industry and the supply chain to develop technologies to revolutionise glass manufacture.



At the heart of our developments will be a new industrial-scale 30 tonnes per day glass manufacturing pilot facility which can be used to trial and demonstrate new manufacturing technologies. To complement this we are developing a range of lab capabilities for smaller-scale trials.
