Glass production is a very energy-intensive process with significant emissions of greenhouse gases, particularly carbon dioxide (CO2). However, there are various strategies that can help move towards a net zero future for glass industry.

One approach is to improve the energy efficiency of glass production processes. This can be achieved through the use of more efficient furnaces, improved insulation, and the recovery and reuse of waste heat generated during the production process.

Another strategy is to transition to renewable energy sources, such as solar, wind, and hydroelectric power, to supply the energy needs of glass production facilities. Switching to renewable energy sources can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions associated with the production of glass.

Moreover, some glass manufacturers are also exploring the use of alternative raw materials to replace traditional sources. For example, some companies are exploring the use of recycled glass materials in the production process, which can significantly reduce the environmental impact of glass production.

Finally, carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies can be employed to capture and store carbon emissions from glass production. This approach can help offset remaining emissions that cannot be eliminated through other means and move towards a net zero future for glass production.

Overall, a combination of energy efficiency improvements, renewable energy, alternative raw materials, and carbon capture and storage can enable the glass industry to move towards a net zero future.

Vietnam and ASEAN have both made some commitments towards a net zero future, though more action is needed to fully achieve this goal. ASEAN has also set some targets for climate action, including a goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 23% by 2025. The organization has also launched the ASEAN Plan of Action on Energy Cooperation, which aims to promote renewable energy and energy efficiency in member states. Vietnam has committed to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 9% compared to business-as-usual levels by 2030, and this target could be increased to 27% with international support. The country has also set a goal of increasing the share of renewable energy in its total energy mix to 15-20% by 2030.

The 45th ASEAN Glass Conference organize from 25th – 29th Sept, 2023 with theme “Our Net Zero Future” is aiming to bring a forum where glass manufacturers, processors, traders, suppliers… and participants have more information on latest solutions, technologies and equipment which can be accompanied with manufacturers and governments in cutting off more CO2 in glass production for “Our Net Zero Future”.
