How refractory solutions can support low emission glass furnace

Since more than 20 years' glass industry made tremendous evolutions to decrease specific energy consumption and increase glass furnace lifetime. On the time going, CO2 quotas emission will drop and push forward to be in agreement with new environmental regulation. In order to help these new trends, refractory solutions can contribute to reach these objectives.

By the way, different solutions could be used such as increasing electrical energy percentage in glass melting, higher insulated furnaces at glass contact and superstructure areas, oxy combustion process and high thermal efficiency glass furnace regenerator.

In each step , we will discuss how refractory material are able to face these specific running conditions, as high temperature corrosion process, electrical resistivity issues, and improved energy exchange in glass furnace thermal regenerators.
