Comparison of Energy Savings of Static and Adaptive Energy Efficient Glazing Systems for Different Climate Zones

Huge energy savings and CO2 emission reduction is possible by use of energy-efficient glazing in Europe’s residential building stock. Current solutions are static, mainly suitable for hot or cold climates, and production is highly energy consumptive. We present a simulation study on energy savings for established static and newly developed adaptive energy efficient glazing. Adaptive solutions are optimized for intermediate climates with drastically reduced energy consumption during production.

Coloring of solar modules at low power loss by a photonic pigment layer

Solar technologies in modern building skins are getting more and more importance. One barrier for implementation of solar into building skins is the optical appearance of solar modules.Photonic effect pigments applied by a ceramic paste can change the optical appearance of solar modules to a variety of colors at low efficiency loss and maintaining cost competitiveness. This helps reducing the total cost of a solar system by reducing the customer acquisition cost. Additionally, colored solar modules can enable new use cases like in historical preservation.

An economic way towards an energetically minimized and CO2-optimized glass production with waste heat recovery

Sustainability and energy efficiency is a topic which increases in importance. One factor for improving the ecological footprint of a glass plant often is the waste gas.
Especially for float glass furnaces, where often more than 5000kW of thermal power are released to the atmosphere via the flue gas, there is potential to recover and utilize waste heat. But still in larger container glass furnaces there is potential to recover up to 2000kW and more of thermal power from the flue gas.
In this presentation different ways to utilize waste heat like the ORC technology are presented and compared.

A commercial and technical feasible future for all-electric commodity glass manufacturing

Electrical heating seems to be the only sensible way forward either perhaps by adding a potential amount of electrical furnace boosting or for sure by changing to all-electric melting methods. Will hydrogen firing become an option, or will it not be energy efficient enough? This will not be an easy progression but nevertheless it is, in many regions already feasible. This lecture will give an overview of what we have found out during customer discussions and the result of a recent studies.

HALO: a sustainable glass processing tool

TYROLIT sees environmental protection not as a restriction, but rather as an opportunity that encourages innovation. Tyrolit has created HALO, a single use wheel for automotive glass that needs no reprofiling, thus avoiding transport to and from service centers with the consequent reduction of CO2. Both weight and volume of one HALO wheel correspond to one third of a standard wheel, with logistic and economic benefits. Moreover, the core of Halo wheels is made of bronze, which is recyclable.

Innovative cup wheel technology for glass edge arrissing of architectural glass

The basic prerequisite for the heat treatment of glass is the arrissing of glass edges. Due to stricter safety regulations and higher requirements to the glass quality, simple edge arrissing is no longer sufficient. Based on the proven cup wheel technology, Glaston has developed an innovative process which additionally planes the basic edge and dubs the corners. The presentation will give an overview of this new technology for glass edge arrissing with regard to the future requirements for architectural glass.

Two main ways to reduce energy demand and to reduce emissions would be the optimize H2 supply and to recycle spent gases. Methods of supply i.e. traditional tubetrailer, pipeline, electrolyser & on-site SMR will be discussed. Gas recovery could also be an obvious fix to reduce emissions. By recycling the atmosphere that is usually vented, material & energy consumption could be reduced, on top of capturing dust. Costs could be reduced leading to a more economic & environmentally sustainable plant.

How to obtain a resource-saving and energy-efficient recyclable material from waste glass.

Glass has the great advantage of being infinitely recyclable without loss of quality. To meet the quality requirements of the glass producing industry, the use of sensor-based sorting is essential. This involves the use of state-of-the-art equipment and sorting systems to remove impurities from the waste glass. By processing waste glass, the amount of waste in general and the energy required for the production of new glass is significantly reduced.
