Waste heat recovery - a green approach
Two of the glass industry’s key challenges include cutting energy consumption during consumption and minimizing the level of CO2 emissions. We offer a cutting-edge, waste heat recovery system for glass plants so that you can achieve climate targets and ensure you receive your operating licenses in the future. And the combined forces of the Grenzebach and CNUD EFCO GFT teams are working on further improvements.
Heat is an asset. You should make it earn interest.
The problem: during the glass melting process, much of the energy in the exhaust gas from the glass melting tanks is lost. WHR systems use this waste heat to generate electrical power, as well as heat and cooling energy for process and air-conditioning purposes.
This leads to a significant increase in energy efficiency, an improvement in the climate protection balance due to avoided C02 emissions, and considerable cost savings by reducing the amount of electricity and fossil fuel that has to be purchased.
