Fossil fuel combustion is a key element affecting glass furnace emissions and energy consumption. Combustion settings and burner types influence heat transfer and formation of aggressive and polluting species such as NOx. In addition to explaining the various mechanisms responsible for pollution, the course will explain how to reduce emissions both from the perspective of primary (process integrated) and secondary (end-of-pipe) techniques.
