Advancing Hydrogen (H2) technologies and smart production systems TO decarbonise the GLass and Aluminium Sectors

Project description

Glass and aluminium manufacturers are searching for sustainable alternatives. Carbon emissions related to the production of glass mainly stem from the combustion of natural gas. In this context, the EU-funded H2GLASS project will bring together 23 partners from around Europe to create a new technology stack that glass and aluminium manufacturers can use to achieve complete hydrogen combustion. Specifically, the project will address the challenges related to emissions of nitrogen oxides and high flame propagation speed, process efficiency and supply of hydrogen for on-site demonstrations. Digital twin techniques will be used to assess risk-based predictive maintenance. Another project feature is the demonstrator in the aluminium industry to prove the transferability of underlying models to similar energy-intensive industries.
