Green Hydrogen In Glass Production : HyNet Project’s Low Carbon Hybrid Furnace Enhances Glass Production

Here’s an article posted in The Glass International that talks about HyNet Project’s low-carbon hybrid furnace.

According to the article,

  • Glass production is energy-intensive, with furnaces consuming 75% of the energy used in glass production operations.
  • Encirc, Glass Futures, and Nikolaus Sorg are developing a low carbon, hybrid furnace as part of the HyNet project.
  • The glass industry must transition away from fossil fuels such as natural gas, and progress is being made in the use of alternative fuels in furnaces.
