Energy Balance Simulations to Quantify Energy/Cost savings
Glass companies are increasingly utilizing various solutions and tactics to try to reduce CO2 emissions and energy consumption in the short term. However, accurately quantifying these advancements is still an arduous task. That's where Energy Balance Simulations become vital as they enable glass companies to rapidly estimate their energy and carbon savings. This is made possible by auditing and benchmarking companies’ glass furnaces against furnaces from around the globe.
That way, Energy Balance modelers can quickly gain insights regarding their furnaces’ performances and make thoughtful decisions that maximize energy savings.
