The May 2018 issue contains a profile on the container glass industry's latest facility: the Bastürk Cam plant located in Malatya, Turkey.

The factory was only commissioned in April but already has plans for a second furnace at the site, alongside its current 300t/day furnace A.

Ahead of the Furnace Solutions event next month, German engineering companies Sorg and Horn provide technical papers.
