<jats:title>Abstract</jats:title><jats:p>A modern society is characterized by functional infrastructure and sufficient number and variety of materials in the form of various technical goods. All these civilization achievements are not only the result of human skills, but their material principles are based on industrial minerals. This group of materials includes a wide range of the natural raw materials which are used in many industries. This includes the raw materials for the manufacture of glass, ceramics or fillers. In 2014 was complete three-year international development aid project under the title “The Development of the Glass Industry in Central Vietnam”. The aim of the project was to find suitable sources of raw materials in formulations for glass production based on previously proven Phong Dien deposit of glass sand. Works carried out for the Czech Development Agency the GET Company from Czech Republic, Prague. In addition to the optimisation of the glass batch, detailed technological research was also implemented with the goal of achieving the full utilisation of Vietnamese raw materials for the manufacture of high quality glass. The production programme may be varied - focusing not only on the purest crystal type glass, but also on flat glass and container glass and even coloured glass.</jats:p>
