The rising costs of fossil fuels, at least in big parts of the world, and a general pressure in the reduction of CO2 is driving industries of all kinds to explore and use alternative energy sources.

This of course includes the glass industry. As a supplier, HORN has made considerable efforts to create fitting solutions for the glass producers to tackle these kinds of challenges. An initial idea and in some ways the most obvious solution is the direct substitution of fossil energy sources with green alternatives.

Dr. Lars Biennek is Technology Business Director at HORN an he discusses options for incorporating more electric power directly into the glass-melting process and shares HORN’s solutions for hybrid technology, all-electric furnaces and electric forehearths.
