Ardagh Glass Packaging builds sustainable Efficient Furnace technology

Ardagh Glass Packaging (AGP) – UK is building a highly sustainable ’Efficient Furnace’ that will minimise greenhouse gas emissions from the glass production process. The state-of-the-art furnace, which will be installed at the AGP – Doncaster, UK Facility, employs the latest industrial technology to provide a more efficient melter with significantly reduced gas consumption and carbon emissions.

It also contains an additional gas filtration process, using advanced filter technology to combat other emissions elements and reduce them to levels substantially below current industrial standards. In conjunction with the furnace installation, AGP – UK will use progressive training initiatives and technology to develop its employees’ knowledge and skills.

The project is part-funded with a grant from the Government’s Industrial Energy Transformation Fund (IETF), which supports businesses with high energy use to transition to a low-carbon future.

Greg Methven, Operations Director, AGP – UK, said: “Ardagh Glass Packaging – Doncaster’s Efficient Furnace project will improve efficiency at the facility while reducing its carbon footprint. The grant support provided has been a key enabler in upgrading the project from a standard cross-fired furnace to more energy efficient, end-fired furnace technology. We would like to thank the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero for their funding support on this project and also our partners, Glass Futures, for their collaboration on the grant application process.”

The new technology is a key part of Ardagh Group’s Sustainability Strategy, which targets a NOx emission intensity reduction of 23% by 2030.
