The efficient future for the glass industry is ‘all-electric’

The burning of fossil fuel as an energy source in the glass melting process results in unavoidable carbon emissions and improvements to traditional technology have reached their efficiency limits. Originally published in the September/October issue, René Meuleman says moving to electrical heating methods has many benefits, including improved energy efficiency, more flexible control and less combustion related emissions. The aim of this presentation, delivered at the 14th International Seminar on Furnace Design in Vsetin, Czech Republic, is to stimulate glass manufacturers into re-thinking their existing melting technology and considering ‘all-electric’ melting in the near future.
