Waste heat management has been identified as one of the most significant opportunities for reducing costs, energy usage and emissions in the glass industry. However, for a number of reasons, other than numerous combustion air preheating technologies in place in the US, minimal use is being made of existing or developing approaches to recover waste heat and use it for other beneficial purposes. The GMIC, Glass Trend, and TNO are collaborating to introduce a number of existing and potential approaches to Waste Heat Management to the glass industry with a one-day workshop to be held on Thursday, 21 October 2010, at the conclusion of the 71st Conference on Glass Problems (GPC) in Columbus, Ohio. Eight presentations by experts from Europe, the US, and Asia will present participants with a variety of solutions for glass companies seeking answers to some of their longstanding sustainability issues.
