This technology could be key in the green revolution and enables oxygen combustion technology that, when combined with hydrogen combustion, results in zero carbon emissions from the process.

With hydrogen’s potential in achieving zero-carbon emissions in glass melting, Nippon is aiming to use the clean energy carrier as a means to decarbonise its entire operations.

For this, Nippon has said that it will continue to develop the hydrogen-oxygen combustion technology toward application as a mass production process.
