TREND TOPICS - RESOURCES

Today, about 50 % of the energy consumed in Germany is used for air conditioning in buildings. 
While the focus in recent years has been on the development of energy-efficient buildings, the focus is increasingly shifting to a holistic view over the entire life cycle - i.e. also with regard to employees, the use of materials and energy consumption. This already begins in glass production. In order to counteract the increasing scarcity of raw materials, alternative raw materials and the most comprehensive recycling possible are becoming increasingly important.

Through waste glass recycling in conjunction with alternative energy sources for reduced energy consumption and CO2 emissions in the production processes, glass provides an almost inexhaustible raw material base. But what about the increasing shortage of skilled workers? Fewer employees and low training quotas demand solutions to close the gap. The latest concepts and developments will be discussed at glasstec.
