The collaboration between Horn Glass Industries AG and glass global consulting GmbH (GGC) will result in further minimization of NOx emissions of glass melting furnaces with additional benefits such as production increase, quality increase and/or energy cost savings.
GGC is licensing its ggENOx system, suitable for regenerative end-port furnaces only, to HORN with the goal to jointly expand this system to all type of furnaces.
The developments of ggENOx, AIF project KF 2579001HG0, were finished mid 2012 with several industrial installations in operation.
"With GGC's system in combination with HORN's proven innovations the past years today is able to offer new regenerative end-port furnaces with very low values long term and in the same time further optimizing the melting and combustion processes.
For furnaces with a 2-burners-per-port-design we can guarantee 500 mg/Nm³.", Christoph Jatzwauk, member of the board at HORN and responsible for R&D in particular said.
"The collaboration with HORN enables GGC to faster develop and implement new and innovative ideas with clear commercial benefits to our customers," Hans Mahrenholtz, MD of GGC added.
