Oxy-combustion technology at Furnace Solutions conference

Fives will present its oxy-combustion solution to optimize combustion process for a better environment outcome at the 18th Furnace Solutions conference on June 5-6, 2024 in Saint Helens, UK.

This event will gather industry experts to discuss and explore the path to sustainability within the glass production sector, with a particular focus on achieving zero  emissions. More information. 


Maximizing thermal efficiency

Fives will give a presentation “Oxy-combustion versus regenerative combustion: thermodynamic aspects and practical solutions" which will describe how replacing air with pure oxygen significantly reduces the volume of flue gases.  

The presentation, delivered by Wolf Khun, Chief Expert of Glass Process at Fives Stein, a Fives’ subsidiary, is scheduled on Wednesday, June 5 at 11:20 GMT. He will explain the advantages of oxy-combustion over regenerative combustion, focusing on thermodynamic efficiency and practical implementation. Fives’ proprietary technology - H.R.A.™ (Heat Recovery Area) - is an energy-saving solution that optimises the use of flue gases for maximum thermal efficiency.
