HydroGenerally - Episode 5: Hydrogen for Glass production

May 30, 2022

In our past episodes, we have debated on the colours of hydrogen, introduced how hydrogen is produced and where it should be used, delving into where it will be most effective in decarbonising energy, industrial and chemical industries, and dedicated our last episodes to focus on the aviation and maritime sector.

In this fifth episode,  Steffan Eldred and Neelam Mughal from Innovate UK KTN discuss how the glass industry is driving new hydrogen developments, and research and explore the hydrogen transition opportunities and challenges in this sector, alongside their special guest Rob Ireson, Innovation and Partnerships Manager at Glass Futures Ltd.
