The GIFFT Project Presented at ŠILUMOS ENERGETIKA - 2024

At the forefront of sustainable energy research, Dr. Nerijus Striūgas, a leading researcher from the Lithuanian Energy Institute's Combustion Processes Laboratory, captivated audiences with his presentation on "Sustainable Heat Production with Fuel-Flexible Technology" at the ŠILUMOS ENERGETIKA - 2024 conference on 31.01.2024.

This significant event, hosted by Kaunas University of Technology in Lithuania, served as a gathering point for over 100 energy sector specialists, including key figures such as the Deputy Minister of Energy, executives from JSC Ignitis, representatives from the Biofuel Exchange (Baltpool), the Lithuanian District Heating Association, and academic professionals. Dr. Striūgas shed light on groundbreaking advancements in heat generation, emphasizing the role of adaptive fuel technology.

A key highlight of his presentation was the introduction of the GIFFT project, a pioneering initiative aimed at developing biofuel-flexible heat production technologies for the industrial glass sector. Leveraging plasma-assisted combustion and gasification, the project aspires to craft an integrated, sustainable solution for heat generation. It promises to assess the techno-economic viability and environmental benefits of its application in European glass manufacturing, marking a significant step towards greener industrial processes.

The presentation not only explored the GIFFT project's objectives and current progress but also introduced the consortium behind this innovative venture. The conference, marking a notable event in the energy sector's calendar, facilitated a vibrant exchange of ideas and set the stage for future collaborations aimed at enhancing sustainability in energy production.
