British Glass is hosting a Waste Heat Recovery Knowledge Transfer Seminar on the 15th November in Sheffield.

The event is free to British Glass members, but open to all of the industry.

Implementing waste heat recovery (WHR) is fast becoming a matter of when rather than if for UK glass manufacturers.

With government funding on the horizon, British Glass is making sure the industry is informed and ready to make the most of the developing opportunities.

Waste heat recovery technologies have huge potential to help glass manufacturers mitigate against fluctuating energy costs, comply with legislation and improve environmental performance.

The glass sector itself has already identified WHR as one of the most promising technologies for improving energy efficiency as part of the Decarbonisation and Energy Efficiency Roadmaps 2050 project.

Aligned with this work, funding is coming on stream from UK Government to help manufacturers implement necessary technology.

At the same time, environmental permitting is putting increased pressure on glass manufacturers to adopt waste heat recovery wherever possible.

British Glass is actively working with the industry, to ensure it is primed to secure the maximum assistance and competitive advantage in this area.

The seminar will give glass manufacturers the opportunity to explore the potential benefits and practical considerations of using waste heat recovery in their operations through presentations, case studies, discussions and opportunities for one-to-one conversations addressing:

Uses of waste heat
Technological options
The legislative and funding landscape
