Discover a highly informative video that effectively addresses the challenges of decarbonizing the flat glass industry.

The video provides clear explanations on three crucial fronts: increased glass recycling through a closed-loop model (flat2flat), the utilization of renewable electricity, and the integration of hydrogen as a clean energy source for the melting furnaces.

Air Products supported a pioneering large-scale hydrogen test at Saint-Gobain (Germany).

Saint-Gobain successfully conducted a large-scale trial at its flat glass production plant in Herzogenrath to test how hydrogen can be used as a fuel for the glass furnace instead of natural gas.

Thirty percent of the total energy consumed by the furnace was replaced by pure hydrogen/air combustion.

Air Products supplied the necessary hydrogen and provided the corresponding gas supply from the trailer to the plant.
