Glass Futures: Combustion Research Facility – EcoLowNOx Project

The EcoLowNOx project, led by Global Combustion Systems (GCS) and supported by Glass Futures is funded as part of the UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) funding competition: ISCF Transforming foundation industries: Building a resilient recovery.

This cross-sector project, bringing together glass and steel, two high energy-consuming sectors, will develop a new combustion technology for high-temperature furnaces that can reduce nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions and improve furnace thermal efficiency.

GCS, supported by project partners Glass Futures, Tata Steel, Liberty Speciality Steels and the University of South Wales, will assess the performance of the GCS ‘Auxiliary Injection’ technology for use in glass and steel furnace scenarios for natural gas as well as a range of renewable and low carbon fuels such as biofuels and hydrogen (for which NOx may be a greater issue).
