  • Refining and Conditioning
  • Batch/Cullet Preheating
  • Glass Composition and Raw Materials
  • Forming and Finishing  

Potential benefits of the research must be realized in manufacturing processes, not in end-use applications.  Proposals for pure glass product development research will not be considered.
