Hindusthan National Glass Industries (HNG) and the Siemens Industry Automation Division have signed a letter of intent for the construction of an industrial waste heat recovery plant in the HNG Global GmbH glassworks in Gardelegen, India.

The existing production plant has been automated using the Simatic PCS 7 process control system and the planned new waste heat recovery plant will be additionally integrated into this system.

The aim is to improve the energy and plant efficiency of the container glass factory and to drive down the factory’s environmental impact and energy costs.

HNG and Siemens are also planning the construction of additional waste heat recovery plants in India.
