Italian glass firms to cut emissions with hydrogen

Working group will blend hydrogen with natural gas in manufacture process

A group of Italian industrial glassmaking firms hope to use hydrogen to reduce emissions produced in their manufacturing processes. Glass manufacture involves melting processes that require high temperatures of over 1,300°C that are difficult to electrify. There are also some process emissions from the decomposition of carbonates. EU glass production produces around 20mn t/yr of CO₂. Italy's emissions amount to 1.5mn t/yr of CO₂—around 3.5pc of the emissions of the whole manufacturing industry. The ‘Divina’ project, coordinated by Italian energy company Snam, classification firm Rina and glass manufacturer Bormioli aims to reduce emissions in the glass melting stage, which accounts for mo
