This BREF covers the industrial installations for the manufacture of glass including glass fibre and installations for melting mineral substances. It considers the different glass manufacturing industries and it is based on the products manufactured, but inevitably there is some overlap between them. The eight glass types covered are:

• container glass
• flat glass
• continuous filament glass fibre
• domestic glass
• special glass (without water glass)
• mineral wool (with two subsectors-glass wool and stone wool)
• high tempertaure insulation wools
• frits.
