Glass

Hydrogen is used in float glass processes to provide an atmosphere of 5-10% hydrogen in nitrogen.

Float glass is widely used to create high quality glass for automotive and buildings applications.

Hydrogen is employed to create an oxygen-free environment as a blanket to avoid oxidisation of the glass, which can otherwise cause imperfections.

Because of the way it is made, float glass is very flat, of uniform thickness and contains no bubbles or distortions.

Using hydrogen generated from renewable sources rather than fossil fuels offers a solution for reducing the greenhouse gas emissions of float glass production.
