Monofrax is to supply the distributor for Encirc’s new 900 tonne furnace in Elton, UK, which it said was the word’s largest container glass furnace.

Monofrax, a fused-cast refractory supplier based in Falconer, NY, USA, said high quality fused cast refractories can assist with decarbonisation.

Fewer refractory replacements reduce raw material and transportation requirements and result in less spent refractory.

“We're excited that our products are helping them achieve their sustainable manufacturing goals,” Monofrax said.
