❓Hydrogen as an option for the ceramics industry?
💡Our take: YES!

We have been aware of it for quite some time: the ceramics industry must find and use alternatives to fossil fuels for the industry’s future and energy transition actions. Both ecological and economical factors make this the only sensible solution. And we see two strong options here: 1️⃣ Electrifying new plants and 2️⃣ alternative gases in existing plants.

Our partner Forschungsinstitut für Glas | Keramik has published their take on hydrogen in the ceramics industry here. And we have also thought about it intesively! Hydrogen for the ceramics industry?

Hydrogen for the ceramics industry?

Electrifying existing kiln plants is rarely a reasonable approach. We see a high potential for the use of (green) hydrogen in these cases. We already offer kilns and modernizations today that are not only highly efficient but allow for the use of up to 💯% already. Save energy and utilize innovation – that’s the ceramic industry’s future!

Transitional solutions are necessary until the industry’s energy needs can be fully met by renewable energy sources – making a defossilization possible. We offer high flexibility in this transition with our EnerViT H2 ready (flexibly using N-gas or hydrogen) as well as with hybrid plants that can even be operated with electricity produced on site.

We need to set the base for a sustainable future now. Find more information on our offer for a decarbonized ceramics industry here and here on our website.
