Fives Group has created a short video to explain its green ambition in the glass industry, titled Glass: Get greener.
The majority of emissions from the glass manufacturing process arise from burning fossil fuels.
Replacing fossil fuels with green electricity can eliminate these pollutants, creating a sustainable manufacturing process.
Fives made its flexible hybrid furnace called Prium Eco-Flex the special focus in the movie, with Heat Recovery Area technology that can achieve up to 80% electric boosting, therefore reducing emissions by up to 60%.
The furnace can use up to 80% recycled glass for much greener glass manufacturing. Technologies exists to make glass production more environmentally friendly.
