Glass, existing in a wide range of types for several end uses, is usually made by melting silica (sand material) at very high temperatures and adding to the melt the necessary fabrics. High temperatures always incur large energy costs. The extraction of the metal oxides from minerals in which they are present in the ground and include purification process is a matter for concern regarding the use of energy, the need for heavy extraction or refining equipment and the production of large quantities of pollution. Glass fibres is also in a group of fibres named inorganic fibres. See Basalt fibres, Carbon Fibres, Asbestos Fibres.
