This exciting project will embed advanced materials expertise in order to explore innovative solutions to support a major European glass manufacturing company in its aims to decarbonise its glass manufacturing processes and operations.
This project will develop and assess new approaches and new formulations for commercial soda-lime-silica type glasses and raw materials, that may be capable of providing reductions in: (i) glass melting energies; (ii) CO2 emissions; (ii) raw materials costs; and / or (iv) container weight.
The project will focus on developing a detailed understanding of routes by which achieving these goals may be feasible through design and development of alternative glass compositions and raw materials.
These outcomes will be developed through benchmarking and lab-scale glass melting and raw materials trials, leading to scale-up and full-scale trials and implementation, as deemed appropriate by the industrial partner.
The Associate will develop a detailed understanding of the company, its products, processes and people; and of the factors which bear upon commercial glass manufacture. Cost-benefit analyses will be undertaken to help to underpin any commercial decisions by the company in the longer-term, and the project will help shape and guide scale-up and full-scale trials using the candidate approaches developed.
