Michael Nathan Glass Engravers Lecture 2021

Michael Nathan Glass Engravers Lecture 2021

Michael had been an avid supporter of Glass Engravers and had worked with Katharine over many years along with a long list of other Glass Engravers. He had supported the Guild of Glass Engravers as well as the Company’s Charity Fund.
The now launched Annual Lecture will honour his memory and will raise funds for the Glass Sellers Charity. This year’s lecture has raised enough to support more that 3 Glass in Society Projects that run nationwide and enables through a Glass related project the ability for children to learn the ‘Wonders of Glass’.

World’s most sustainable glass bottles created in ground-breaking  biofuel trial

World’s most sustainable glass bottles created in ground-breaking biofuel trial

An aspirational mission to create the world’s most sustainable glass bottle has been lauded an incredible success by the industry, following initial results from a ground-breaking trial.
A revolutionary project undertaken by glass container manufacturer, Encirc (a Vidrala company), and industry research and technology organisation, Glass Futures, has proven that new bottles are able to be made from 100% recycled glass, using only the energy from burning ultra-low-carbon biofuels.
It is thought that the world-first initiative will pave the way for an industry-wide reduction in carbon emissions, as the glass sector moves away from fossil fuels, and towards low-carbon alternatives.
