If you’re looking for a more sustainable way of melting glass, look no further than the powerful new CLEAN Melter® from SORG.
Having patented the world’s first hybrid furnace, we are getting much closer to safeguarding the future for everyone to benefit from carbon neutral energy.
A growing demand for the glass industry to rapidly reduce its carbon impact has led to major global brands seeking local manufacturers who respect and support their sustainability strategies.
By combining electric melting with existing furnace technology, the CLEAN Melter® offers the best of both worlds. It can increase the electric share to as much as 80%, resulting in much lower energy consumption and carbon emissions, while also offering greater flexibility in pull variations and raw material changes.
Depending on the locality, it can even start as a conventional combustion furnace with electric boosting and convert later without further modifications.
Depending on the amount of electric boosting – up to 80% – the CO2 emissions are strongly reduced.
The reason behind our hybrid concept is really simple. Because without it, glass has no future. Not only will the CLEAN Melter® have the capability to reduce the carbon emissions of larger furnace operations by as much as 80%, it will also offer enormous cost savings and greater flexibility.
With an unrivalled knowledge of electric and hybrid melting, we have all the experts and technology in place, ready to make it happen. Plus, we have the quality measures and rigorous testing processes to deliver every promise. Glass melting is dramatically changing for the better, and SORG furnaces are central to enabling these technological revolutions.
