AGC Glass Europe inaugurates renovated float glass line in Řetenice

A ribbon ceremony was held in AGC Glass Europe‘s plant in Řetenice, Czech Republic, to inaugurate the renovated float glass line, which was shut down to carry out a cold repair of the furnace and connected utilities.

This float line features the innovative hot oxy-combustion technology, using 100 percent oxygen as an oxidiser instead of air, which results in a decrease of melting energy consumption and a reduction of CO2 and NOx emissions. This furnace design is one example of AGC’s continuous quest to reduce its #environmental impact.

The ribbon was cut by AGC managers, in presence of employees of the plant, the engineering team and overhaul
