The high temperature and stability of waste heat sources in glass plants make waste heat recovery interesting. We already identified the following interesting hot spots for Thermagy to harvest and convert waste heat in the glass production process:
Potential Thermagy hot spots for maintaining a constant temperature are:
We have several discussions ongoing in the non-ferrous industry about pre-feasibility studies and pilots in which we’re discussing the Thermagy hot spots to make maximum use of Thermagy’s value. A first Thermagy pilot is now running at Tata Steel IJmuiden, a second pilot is taking place at the Dutch branches of St. Gobain, Ardagh, Libbey and O-I that are united in the Dutch Association of the Glass Industry (VNG).
