Glass and Ceramics (English translation of Steklo i Keramika) | Year: 2010
It is shown that there is promise in replacing the conventional mix with one that includes synthetic raw materials (SRMs) or consists entirely of SRMs. This will permit economizing raw materials and fuel-energy resources, simplify the technology for preparing glass mix, intensify the technological process of making glass, increase the equality and stability of the characteristics of the glass produced, and improve the environment. SRMs will make it possible to organize glass production in regions which do not have their own raw materials resources. © 2010 Springer Science+Business Media, Inc.
