New energy recovery system for a glass plant in Bulgaria

Rueil-Malmaison, October 14, 2014

As the result of fruitful discussions with Turkish owner of a glass plant in Bulgaria, AIT Group has signed a new contract for a turnkey energy recovery system on a new furnace.

AIT Group will be responsible for design, delivery and erection of an advanced technology solution, which consists in several heat exchangers (recuperators) and a thermal loop.

The purpose of this recovery system is to collect most of the energy contained in the exhaust fumes from the glass furnace, and then to preheat fuels which are used to melt the glass. This system will highly contribute to reduce natural gas consumption and greenhouse gas emissions of the glass plant.

This new application of heat exchangers could apply for glass market but also to steelmaking, primary metals or cement factories.
