Reduction of fuel consumption in glass melting furnaces can cut the cost of production, and tackle the global warming. This paper presents three independent solutions to reduce the fuel consumption in industrial glass melting furnaces. The solutions include air preheating, raw material preheating, and improving the insulation of combustion space refractory. Energy balance equations are derived and used to identify the effects of each solution. The results indicate that the three solutions reduce the fuel consumption by 9.5%, 17%, and 34%, respectively.
