High Gain Antenna Gimbal (HGAG) for the rover Perseverance of the Mars 2020 mission
The efforts of electro-intensive industries to replace the use of fossil fuels with green hydrogen still face many challenges within the process: generating the hydrogen, preparing the infrastructure, modifying and adjusting the process, the economic viability and safe handling in industrial facilities.
H2Glass objective us to create a new technology stack that glass and aluminium manufacturers can use to achieve complete hydrogen combustion. Specifically, the project will address the challenges related to emissions of nitrogen oxides and high flame propagation speed, process efficiency and supply of hydrogen for on-site demonstrations. In addition, digital twin techniques will be used to assess risk-based predictive maintenance.
During the next 4 years full-scale tests will be carried out in European furnaces. Subsequently, the aim is to transfer the results of this research to all furnaces and achieve the total decarbonization of the glass industry in the next 30 years.

Sener participates in H2Glass sharing the experience and technological knowledge of its expert team in the field of hydrogen to define and design a suitable and safe solution that integrates renewable hydrogen in the glass and aluminum production processes. In addition, we support the technology integration process in the different sites that are part of the project.
