Enhancing Efficiency with Oxygen Fuel Technology

The glass industry is under severe cost constraints and increasing environmental pressure to reduce emissions. Air Liquide provides glass manufacturers with solutions to improve their competitiveness and environmental footprint.

As long standing experts in oxy-combustion, which is the process of burning a fuel using pure oxygen instead of air as the primary oxidant, we have substantial R&D resources and a strong experience in glass making thanks to our extensive network of field experts.

Long standing experts in oxy-combustion

We master oxy-combustion technologies, for example in designing patented burners and modeling heating in furnaces. We leverage on this know-how and put it to work for our customers through a personalized approach. Our technologies allow us to partner with glassmakers from the conception to the commissioning and the full operation of their furnaces. Air Liquide markets comprehensive gas solutions customized to all subsectors of the industry, ranging from tableware and flat glass, to technical glass such as fiberglass or solar panels.
