The new Forglass furnace at Ardagh Glass Packaging – Europe’s recently modified site in Wyszkow, Poland has proven to be highly energy efficient.

Ardagh recently completed the investment for a turnkey batch and cullet plant at its Wyszkow site, which was supplied by Forglass.

The site's new furnace is highly energy-efficient thanks to the inventiveness of Forglass engineers and the company’s extensive Research and Development facility with computer modelling and real-life testing.

Forglass designed, engineered, fabricated, and erected the new furnace relying on the company’s proprietary technology and including full automation, safety systems and gas supply.

The furnace has now entered full production phase and the tests performed prior to final acceptance showed that energy consumption is even lower than guaranteed by Forglass.

Reducing emissions and improving the impact on the environment is one of the key targets for the glass industry and indeed, for both Ardagh and Forglass.
