Do we need to use oil to make glass?

    Unless the heat from the ovens is provided from oil burning power plants, there isn’t any oil use necessary in the manufacture of glass. Man-made glass is created by combining a mixture of sand, sodium bicarbonate, and limestone. This mixture is then melted together into glass, and the resulting combination is molded and allowed to cool. So no, Oil is not necessary.

    I hope this helped!

    Oil is used to fuel the vehicles that mine the sand, soda ash, limestone and other components of glass; oil is used in the vehicles that transport those materials to glass manufacturing facilities; oil is used in the vehicles that distribute finished products around the world.
