Session 5: Towards Carbon-Free Glass Production

Sponsored by:











The worldwide energy transition to durable energy resources will have major consequences for the glass manufacturing industry. Today the carbon dioxide emissions for the production of 1 kg of glass typically vary between 0.4 and 1 kg, depending on glass type and quality, furnace type and process efficiency. In this session the technological challenges for the glass industry to face the Paris climate agreement will be the leading topic. We invite speakers to present their view on innovative melting technologies enabling carbon dioxide neutral glass production, including flexible hybrid melters, full electric melters, application of low carbon combustion processes and use of carbonate-free raw materials.
