Successful ggENOx installation in 3 container glass furnaces

glassglobal Engineering has completed a very successful installation at Cristalerias Toro in Chile.

glassglobal Engineering / glass global Consulting GmbH, part of glassglobal Group ("GGC") has completed a very successful installation of ggENOx at Cristalerías Toro S.p.A. in Chile ("Cristalerías Toro").

ggENOx was integrated in all Cristalerías Toro´s 3 end-port container glass furnaces. Two furnaces in continuous operation had not to be interrupted for the installation; the third installation was realized in a new furnace.

The ggENOx installations including a combustion optimization resulted in a NOx reduction by more than 40%.

Moreover these installations also brought an additional energetic advantage. Until today, Cristalerías Toro achieved an energy reduction by 3-5 % that still has to be proven long term.

"We are very happy with the ggENOx system and we now have achieved a position to cope with the governmental limit values and do not have to pay any penalty. The investment will be amortized within a very short period.", Alvaro Medina, Sustainable Innovations Manager at Cristalerías Toro, said.

"The performance of ggENOx over a wide production range with no parameter changes is quite impressive", Dipl.-Ing. Hans Mahrenholtz, MD of GGC added.
