LIFE Smart Oxy-Boost Project LIFE 17 CCM/BG/000069

 

Smart Oxygen Boosting for Reducing Energy Consumption and Emissions of Glass Melting Furnaces

Facilitating the wide spread use of partial oxy-fuel conversion in air-fuel float glass furnaces with an innovative combination of smart burners equipped with sensors and wireless communication means in communication with the process changes in the furnace.

Total Budget       : 1,990,591  Euro

EU Contribution : 884,693  Euro

Project duration : from 01-JUL-2018 to 31-DEC-2021

 

 

LIFE Smart Oxy-Boost Main Objectives

  • Reduce specific GHG emissions (2,8% less CO2 and 10% less NOx) compared to side fired (air-fuel) furnace by only using ~10% of O2 and <10% of CAPEX required for typical full oxy-fuel furnace conversion.
  • Reduce specific Energy consumption by 4,2% while increasing Production by 15,4% compared to side-fired regenerative (air-fuel) furnace.
  • Reduce Particulate emissions by 5%
