Summary

E-Batch is a new technology being developed at BOC Gases for preheating batch and cullet using the waste heat from furnace exhaust gases. It is unique in two regards. First, it is specifically designed for integration with oxy-fuel-fired furnaces. Second, it incorporates exhaust gas cleaning to the most stringent regulatory levels. If the development program is successful, the resulting combined technology for glass melting promises to offer a simpler and lower-cost means of melting glass than conventional air-fuel furnaces fitted with air pollution control systems.
