The annual A.T.I.V. event will be held in Parma on November 8th, 2019 at Dipartimento di Scienze della Terra in University Campus, Parma, Italy.
The Training Course with the title “Industrial Emission Directive (IED): European Legislation, State of Art of best practices for emission reduction and monitoring, combustion optimization” will deal with the fact that environmental goals are always more ambitious and the consequences of this is that the laws concerning emissions and pollutions are becoming more and more restrictive. The challenge for a glass manufacturer is the respects of the laws while maintaining the quality standard of the glass produced unchanged.
In order to reach this goals it’s important to be updated on European Legislation, its various interpretations and what the future will bring. The European regulations EU-ETS and IPPC directives have a large impact on the European glass industry and should harmonize the efforts in the European Union to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (EU-ETS) and other emissions (IPPC).
The topic of combustion optimization will be discussed, since optimizing this fundamental aspect of the process is the first step for having a quality production and reduced emissions. This aspects take into account many process factors and every furnace has its own adapted strategy function of furnace type, its pull rate, type of glass produced.
An integrated approach, which includes the optimization the combustion and all the others abatement techniques, i.e. electrostatic precipitator, DeNOx, is necessary and very helpful in order to achieve environmental and quality goals.
