Summary

The Glass Manufacturing Industry Council was incorporated in September 1998. Representatives of some of the major U. S. glass companies created this association to facilitate the identification of research needed within the industry that would lead it to greater energy efficiency, still-better control of emissions, and greater success in the global marketplace. Working with government research facilities, universities, and industry suppliers and research laboratories, its members identify and set priorities for research to be carried out under a number of U. S. Department of Energy “Industries of the Future” programs. Member companies represent the four major sectors (flat, container, fiber-, and specialty glass) of the glass industry as well as companies, research institutions, and educational institutions with interests in the glass industry.
