Forehearths Process Control - Continuous Gob Monitoring SystemCosts & Benefits
|Parent Process: Conditioning and Forming|
|Energy Savings Potential||
By installing this system, a glass container plant in the UK realized primary energy savings of 2.4 TJ/year (Worrell et al., 2008. p.71).
|CO2 Emission Reduction Potential|
The plant in the UK realized savings of $8,600/year due to reduced energy cost and $8,500/year due to reduced material costs. With a total investment of $26,000, the payback time was 18 months [1993 values] (Worrell et al., 2008. p.71).
