Advanced oxygen solutions for efficiency

Glass is a fully recyclable and sustainable material used in the fabrication of everything from tableware or windows for the automotive and the construction industries to more technical glass, such as flat screens for smartphones. Demand for glass is on the rise due to population and infrastructure growth. Glass is made in furnaces at very high temperatures with a process that requires constant improvement to meet the energy efficiency and environmental challenges posed by the manufacturing cycle.
