Newbie looking for info: Help!


I am trying to find out about the glass manufacturing process, specifically the chemicals, minerals, oils and other inputs that are required in the production they are used etc etc. I am not a technical person, and am looking for a "big picture" explanation..
If there is a web site that anyone can direct me to, please do so.

Many thanks
