GTS secures £186,645 worth of grants for batch reformulation project

, Glass Technology Services (GTS) / Glass International

Glass Technology Services (GTS) secured a total of £186,645 in grants for its EnviroGlass batch reformulation project.

In partnership with Sheffield Hallam University (SHU), GTS has secured two grants. This includes £156,645 from the Energy Catalyst Initiative of Innovate UK and £30,000 from the British Glass Environmental Steering Group.

The aims of the project are to investigate the challenges identified within the glass industry’s 2050 decarbonisation roadmap and identify cost-effective routines to achieving decarbonisation.

Across the wider float and container glass industry, potential benefits could amount to a reduction of more than 150,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions and £5 million in energy costs in the UK alone.

In the UK, amber glass production could equate to the annual savings of over £500,000 in energy costs, combined with a 35 Gwh/year reduction in energy demand and a 42kT/year reduction in CO2 emissions. 

EnviroGlass has successfully demonstrated proof of the substitution of raw materials with waste streams from other sectors. This includes reducing energy demands, emissions, waste and contributing towards the circular economy.

The next phase of the project will be EnviroGlass 2.
