The research, development and training Centre of Excellence opened in St Helens, Merseyside, in June 2023. And we're currently installing our industrial scale 30 tonnes per day pilot furnace with abatement and heat recovery.
This pilot line will support our existing R&D to bridge the gap between Technology Readiness Level (TRL) and commercial viability and readiness. It will have full plant utilities and services and glass output can be processed by an IS machine and cold end container process coating, inspections and packing line.
Our membership will have access to the pilot furnace and world class training and development activities for both them and their supply chain.
We've been independently assessed by BSI against internationally recognised standards showing our commitment to excellence.
