Summary

Since the inception of extensive worker protection and waste segregation/disposal programs on glass furnace repairs in 1984, much has been accomplished throughout the glass industry to reduce costs and approach widespread compliance. This paper provides an update on the highlights and status of what is going on today in the industry, some future developments, and thoughts on where to go from here. Primary factors of work practices, furnace design changes, materials substitutions, and recycling for cost-effective compliance are discussed.
