Dissolvable Glass Technology

The goal of the Dissolvable Glass Technology research project is to develop new glass technologies and products to reduce the cost and environmental impact in the utility, forestry, and oil and gas sectors. It has been said that we are ‘entering the age of glass’, and we aim to explore the numerous and varied possibilities where dissolvable glasses can be utilized. However, to achieve these glass technologies, fundamental glass research must be performed in three key areas: mechanical properties, thermal behaviour and dissolution behaviour.
