Ardagh’s “NextGen” Furnace Enjoys Successful Operational Introduction 

We are excited to announce the successful operational debut of our CLEAN Melter® (Ardagh’s NextGen Furnace), which is now producing low-carbon glass bottles.

The CLEAN Melter® represents a significant stride in our journey towards carbon neutrality. It primarily uses electricity for heating, significantly reducing the need for fossil fuels. This initiative showcases our dedication through a combination of our profound furnace design expertise and the advanced mathematical modelling performed by our specialists at Nikolaus SORG.

Situated at the Ardagh facility in Obernkirchen, Lower Saxony, Germany, the construction of this project was completed over a period of 6 months.
