H2GLASS is introduced at Conference on Decarbonising combustion in hard-to-abate sectors | 5 – 6 December 2023 in Milan
October 13, 2023 | Events
The International Flame Research Foundation (IFRF) and its Italian Committee are organising a Topic-Oriented Technical Meeting (TOTeM), the 50th TOTeM in the series, on December 5 and 6, 2023 in Milan. The theme of the event is “Decarbonising combustion” with a focus on hard-to-abate sectors like glass, metal, cement and ceramic. The event will take place at the Piacenza Campus of the Politecnico di Milano and will include a visit of a nearby innovative Carbon Capture facility.
The conference theme was inspired by the glass industry’s need to address its emission problem, as well as the IFRF’s goal of enhancing applied combustion research and increasing cooperation and information exchange throughout the international combustion and energy arena. The glass industry contributes about 5% of total industrial CO2 emissions in Europe. Therefore, the partnership is proposing a shared way to discuss developments in the field of combustion by collaborating with other expert subjects.
The conference will analyse themes like emission containment, decarbonization, and more. The topic’s effects in terms of modelling and, as a result, the valuation and application of the various melting solutions will also be discussed. H2GLASS will be introduced among other initiatives and projects that are committed to accelerating decarbonisation in the glass industry.
The event is meant to represent a gathering of hard-to-abate industrial fields, including steel industry, cement industry and others, since we are all facing the same issues, and we need to share our goals and our solutions.
