Glassglobal’s engineering and consultancy group carried out the installation, which saw ggENOx integrated in all of Cristalerías Toro's three end-port container glass furnaces.
Two furnaces in continuous operation were not interrupted for the installation; the third installation was realised in a new furnace.
The ggENOx installations, including a combustion optimization, resulted in a more than 40% NOx reduction.
The installations also brought an additional energy. Until today, Cristalerías Toro achieved an energy reduction by 3-5% that still has to be proven long term.
"We are very happy with the ggENOx system and we now have achieved a position to cope with the governmental limit values and do not have to pay any penalty.
"The investment will be amortised within a very short period", said Alvaro Medina, Sustainable Innovations Manager at Cristalerías Toro.
