A letter of endorsement has been signed by national glass associations and ‘Furnace for the Future’ (F4F) founding members for the project set up by FEVE.

The project brings together 19 European container glass manufacturers including Ardagh Group, Vidrala and O-I to build the world’s first large-scale hybrid electric furnace to run on 80% green electricity.

Ardagh Group will build the F4F and run it in Obernkirchen, Lower Saxony, Germany.

The other glass companies will co-finance the project, and in return, will receive all the necessary information (plant visits, training of operators, operating parameters) to run similar plants.
