Currently, numerous glass melting furnaces are operating worldwide, but in large furnaces, a significant portion of the thermal energy relies on fossil fuels. AGC is aiming for carbon neutrality and is progressing towards decarbonizing the energy source for glass melting furnaces. In particular, we are focusing on ammonia, which does not emit GHG during combustion, and have been participating in NEDO project “Development of Fuel Ammonia Combustion Technology in Industrial Furnaces” since 2021. In June of this year, we conducted a demonstration test of ammonia combustion in a glass melting furnace. We will continue to work towards larger scale introduction of ammonia fuel in glass melting furnaces in the future.
