What we do

  • Objectives

  • Develop the technology stack that will enable 100% H2combustion in the glass industry;

  • Validate H2GLASS technology through application in industrial context;

  • Prove economic and environmental viability of H2GLASS solutions compared to fossil fuels; 

  • Develop IT architecture for automatic control and management and more efficient industrial processes;

  • Raise public understanding on H2 technology as solution for decarbonising industrial processes;

  • Transfer technology to other EU energy-intensive industries.


  • Methodology

1. Technology foundation
  • Develop specific furnace systems with improved heat transfer efficiency and minimal emissions

  • Adapt factory infrastructure to H2 process integration

  • Optimise mixed use of fossil fuels and H2

2. Digital Twin Technology for management & control
  • Develop new models and algorithms for automatic control of combustion system and furnace

  • Implement measurement instruments and imaging techniques to monitor H2 flames

  • Develop required big data infrastructure for data storage and analysis

3. Testing and validation of H2GLASS technology
  • Testing of H2GLASS technology in 6 Industrial demonstrators supplied with H2 by a portable electrolyser

  • Including one Industrial demonstrator representing the EU Aluminium Industry to test transferability of H2GLASS solutions to other energy-intensive industries

  • Assessment of technological, economic and societal impacts of green H2 compared to fossil-based fuels

Kick-Off Meeting in Ljubljana

Kick-Off Meeting in Ljubljana

A first important step for the H2GLASS project, was to get together to connect and plan the common activities. All partners gathered in Ljubljana, Slovenia to get to know each other better, visit the first Industrial Demonstrator – Steklarna Hrastnik – and focus on the workplan of the first months..Read More
