Waste heat recovery (WHR) technologies have huge potential to help glass manufacturers mitigate against fluctuating energy costs, comply with legislation and improve environmental performance.

And with government funding on the horizon, British Glass is making sure the industry is informed and ready to make the most of the developing opportunities.

Implementing waste heat recovery is fast becoming a matter of when rather than if for UK glass manufacturers.

The glass sector itself has already identified WHR as one of the most promising technologies for improving energy efficiency as part of the Decarbonisation and Energy Efficiency Roadmaps 2050 project.

And aligned with this work, funding is coming on stream from UK Government to help manufacturers implement necessary technology.

At the same time, environmental permitting is putting increased pressure on glass manufacturers to adopt waste heat recovery wherever possible.

That’s why British Glass is actively working with the industry, ensuring it is primed to secure the maximum assistance and competitive advantage in this area.

The Waste Heat Recovery Knowledge Transfer Seminar in November 2016 - free to British Glass members but open to all in the industry – is part of that work.

It will give glass manufacturers the opportunity to explore the potential benefits and practical considerations of using waste heat recovery in their operations through presentations, case studies, discussions and opportunities for one-to-one conversations addressing:

  • uses of waste heat
  • technological options
  • the legislative and funding landscape


Mark Pudner, British Glass Senior Technical Adviser said:

We’re really excited about the line-up of speakers we’ve been able to assemble for this seminar. Leading suppliers of plant to the glass industry – including Area Impianti, Air Liquide, Zippe and Praxair will be with us. We also have policy and financing specialists there. So from technical details to the wider operating context – we’ll have the experts with us to answer the questions that really matter to individual glass manufactures.


British Glass Environmental Advisor, Valli Murthy said:

With government funding on the horizon, and permitting legislation putting pressure on manufacturers to adopt waste heat recovery – it’s never been more important to understand how this technology fits into business strategy. This event gives delegates targeted, industry relevant information on the major options – all in one day.
