GIFFT continues to gain international recognition

This time GIFFT is visiting Rhodes, Greece, where the 11th International Conference on Sustainable Solid Waste Management took place from 19 to 22 June 2024. Dr. N. Striūgas from the Lithuanian Energy Institute presented the GIFFT project, its goal, objectives, and the expected innovative solutions to be developed, which will reach their conceptual level within four years of the project's implementation, to the broader (over 550 presentations) scientific community.

The "Flexible Hybrid Furnace of the Future" is the European glass industry's vision for climate neutrality in the EU. The talk started with this message and the need to minimise CO2 in energy-intensive industries. Well, the GIFFT project is working towards this goal - to develop and validate a flexible hybrid furnace that optimally uses freely available low-cost green electricity and biofuels to facilitate the transition from natural gas to a new low-carbon and more dynamic heat generation. By combining plasma gasification of biomass and flexible combustion of hybrid fuels, the GIFFT process can provide high fuel flexibility and more dynamic operation in response to changes in energy and fuel markets.
