Helmut Sorg elected to Fellowship of Society of Glass Technology
Fellowship of the Society of Glass Technology may be granted to those who are found worthy by qualification, by experience and through service in promoting the objects for which the Society was founded. In 2005, having fulfilled these requirements, Helmut Sorg was invited to become a Fellow.
Crowded schedules made it difficult to find an opportunity to present the Fellowship Certificate, but this was finally arranged for a meeting of the Yorkshire Section of the Society at the Rotherham works of Beatson Clark on 24th January 2007. Before the ceremony Helmut gave a presentation entitled "The future direction of glass melting technology ?", which compared potential furnace solutions to present and future emission problems.
