The combustion properties of renewable hydrogen enhance glass manufacturing sustainability, reducing carbon emissions and environmental impact. In oxy-combustion furnaces, hydrogen combined with oxygen maximizes energy efficiency, greatly reducing fuel consumption and nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions, improving air quality and overall glass production sustainability. By reducing airflow, oxy-combustion makes CO2 capture in exhaust gases easier to achieve as the volumes to proceed are highly reduced.

Moreover, when hydrogen is used as a reducing agent in float glass production it improves the purity and quality of the glass by eliminating impurities.
