In the Conference Area, we will be offering valuable insights into innovative processes, cutting-edge technologies and the global trend topics of the glass industry over three days: the challenges of climate change (Climate), scarcity of resources (Resources), advancing urbanization (Urbanization), the need for further value enhancement (Value) - in addition, we will be demonstrating the possibilities that the material glass offers for increasing the quality of life of people (Happiness). What contribution can the glass industry make to mastering the acute global challenges? The glasstec VIRTUAL conference attempts to provide an answer to this question.

International industrial and glass associations discuss the market situation in the hollow glass and flat glass industries, taking a global perspective on it in two high-profile panel discussions. These contributions are organised by Glass Worldwide; the well-known trade journal for glassmakers around the world.

Innovative solutions
that protect the climate.


Modern glazing solutions have already achieved a very high level of energy efficiency thanks to continuous development. They ensure high thermal insulation and at the same time generate solar heat gains. New special glasses can significantly reduce the need for heating and cooling in buildings, thereby reducing energy consumption and the associated CO2 emissions.


But what is the situation in the glass manufacturing and processing process? How can the glass industry reduce emissions through new manufacturing processes? What legal regulations and standards will we have to adapt to in the future? What new and improved energy concepts are there? Answers to these and many other questions on the subject of energy efficiency will be provided by glasstec with the solutions and innovations presented here.
