has also been a pioneer in oxygen-fueled glass furnace technology, which cuts natural gas consumption by 15 percent compared to conventional air-fired glass furnaces, while reducing carbon emissions by 10 percent and nitrogen oxide emissions by more than 50 percent, operating one-third of the world’s oxygen-fueled glass furnaces.

The company promotes sustainability through post-consumer recycling of its products, by meeting global regulatory statutes and by developing wildlife-friendly products such as the industry’s first “bird-safe” low-emissivity (low-e) glass, and “turtle glass,” which helps turtle hatchlings survive in commercially developed coastal areas.
