| This study identifies the existing supply-chain inefficiencies in the UK glass industry in three stages.
| Laminated glass recycling is becoming increasingly important and urgent due to limited raw materials.
| The paper deals with the recycling of laminated glass, especially with the effective separation of glass (in the form of cullet) from the polyvinyl butyral (PVB) interlayer film.
| End-of-life insulating glass units (IGUs) continue to follow a linear, wasteful path from renovation and demolition sites into landfills or low-value recycling.

| An Interlayer Material Study Towards Circular, Dry-Assembly, Interlocking Cast Glass Block Structures
| Industrial manufacture of solar building components and their integration into the building planning process
| To create spectacular Tampa Bay views from inside the museum, Novum Structures used hurricane-resistant safety glazing.
| This paper explores the flexural strength of recycled cast glass—a property relevant to the engineering practice.
| Originally developed for glazing in hurricane zones, SentryGlas® ionoplast interlayers are significantly stiffer than standard PVBs such as Butacite®.
| Post breakage strength of glass is still an unknown area as analytical models for this are inconclusive so far and thus destructive testing is the only reliable solution.
Effects of Humidity and the Presence of Moisture at the Bond-line on the Interfacial Separation of Laminated Glass for Flat Glass Re-use
| This study forms part of a wider research programme that aims to better address the end-of-life challenges and opportunities in façade design for re-use.
| The post-breakage behavior of glass beams is not easy to predict, therefore Octatube performed a range of tests on different glass fins varying the test setup.
| The paper presents an overview of the work completed within the on-going research project “Structural safety of glass components” carried out at the Silesian University of Technology, Lund University and RISE Research Institutes of Sweden.
| Thin glass offers a promising prospect for lightweight façades with reduced use of raw materials, also opening up entirely new perspectives for architectural expression.
| Data-based business models are also becoming increasingly relevant to the glass industry.
| Sustainability and the circular economy are increasingly influencing work and production processes in glass manufacturing, too.
| Held in Düsseldorf from 15 to 18 June 2021 glasstec will pick up on the latest glass trends related to shapes, formats and structures.
| Digitalisation is not only something for start-ups or major enterprises. It applies just as naturally to many skilled trade businesses.
| In this paper we will look at the potential of what is now a commonly used component in facade design - a load-bearing glass wall panel.

| Time-temperature superposition principle is widely used to generate interlayer modulus properties in the form of mastercurves for use in glass design.
Comparative Study of Cantilevered Laminated Glass Balustrades using Full-scale Testing, FEM, and ASTM E1300 Formulas
| Historically, monolithic tempered glass has been primarily used in North America, but with the recent changes to the International Building Code (IBC 2015), laminates with heat strengthened or tempered glass are now required.
