Furnaces International Issue
March 2023

Welcome to the March issue of Furnaces International.

As I’m writing this, the weather here in the UK can’t seem to make up its mind as to whether it is officially spring yet, but with the clocks poised to go forward at the end of this month, longer days and lighter evenings are on the horizon again.

We are always a few steps ahead in publishing and looking towards the next few months, so the months can fly by, but it seems the furnaces industry is also not standing still at the moment.

After a lively Glassman Event was recently held in Istanbul, Turkey, this issue features a host of articles featuring the efforts going into decarbonising glass furnaces.

There is also a fascinating historical look at an iconic UK landmark, Redcar furnace, which after close to five decades of service, was demolished in late 2022.

I hope you enjoy this issue!
