The workshop will take place May 16-17, 2024, at the Hyatt Pittsburgh International Hotel in Pittsburgh.

The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Industrial Efficiency & Decarbonization Office (IEDO) will be conducting a Glass Decarbonization workshop, at the Hyatt Pittsburgh International Airport (1111 Airport Blvd, Pittsburgh, PA 15231).  The Biden Administration has set an ambitious target to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. The industrial sector was responsible for approximately 30% of the total US energy related CO2 emissions in 2020 and the glass manufacturing sector was identified as one of eight strategic sectors of focus in the 2023 DOE Industrial Decarbonization Pathways to Commercial Liftoff Report.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together stakeholders to identify key challenges, priorities, and opportunities for decarbonization of the glass manufacturing sector. Emphasis will be placed on technical challenges, as well as applied research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) opportunities at low to mid technology readiness levels (TRLs). During the workshop, IEDO leadership will provide an overview of the IEDO office and share the vision, strategy, and available resources to support innovations to improve energy efficiency and reduce the carbon footprint across U.S. manufacturing operations. Participants’ input will help inform IEDO’s priorities and future plans in supporting decarbonization of the glass manufacturing sector.
