Glass production

The role of the cold end of glass container production is to complete the final tasks in the manufacturing process: manufacture is also a geographical business; the product is heavy and large in volume, and the major raw materials (sand, soda ash and limestone) are generally readily available. Therefore production facilities need to be located close to their markets. A typical glass

How Glass is Made? Glass Manufacture

Production of glass in modern times has not change much since it was discovered in ancient areas of Persia and Egypt sand (which consists of silica, soda ash and lime) is heated to extreme temperatures, and then is allowed to cool down and be shaped into almost any form by either blowing or pouring in pre-designed molds. This extremely easy process can also be enriched with additives, which

Inside the O-I Glass Making Process The Leading Glass

Like every other manufacturing process, making glass begins with raw materials. Fortunately, glass is infinitely and 100% recyclable, so cullet (recycled glass) is our main ingredient. Other raw materials needed for glass are silica sand, soda ash and limestone. As we source raw materials locally, the impact on the environment is limited as much as possible.
