Innovative PRImary MEasures for reduction of NOx emissions and Energy consumption by glass furnaces
The PRIME GLASS project aims to trial and demonstrate technologies that will significantly improve environmental impact of the glass industry, reducing NOx, CO2, CO sulfur oxides and dust emissions and energy consumption.
It will develop and test applicable and effective solutions for:
- NOx containment at the source during the combustion process
- Combustion optimization in regenerative and hybrid glass furnaces by increasing heat exchange
Moreover, it will demonstrate advantage of infrared thermography applied to the glass furnace, offering a quantitative monitoring of the temperature field in the melted glass and in the flame structure.
