Polish technology company Forglass has begun the second phase of tests for its experimental furnace.

Forglass invested in the construction of an experimental furnace two years ago. This was to allow the company to test its technologies for improving energy efficiency and reducing harmful emissions.

Following the initial phase of tests, the furnace was cooled and a number of parameters were assessed.

The furnace has been brought up to working temperature again and the second phase of tests have begun to make sure that the innovative solutions are safe to be fully implemented in the industry.

Despite the furnace being costly, Forglass felt the investment was necessary to ensure the performance and safety parameters of its inventions are met.
