This waste heat can be used to generate either heat, chilling energy and /or electrical power. Our service portfolio includes everything you need, from the planning, erection and off-balance financing to operation of the system technology installed by our company. Long-term cost savings can be generated by reintroducing the energy created for other production steps at your company, supplying this energy to neighboring companies or feeding it into a connected remote heating network. Multiple glass producers are already profiting from high annual energy cost savings with the waste heat utilization concepts from our company.
