Vetreria Archimede Seguso
This project, sponsored by Vetreria Archimede Seguso, a glass company located in Murano, Italy, assessed the feasibility of generating electricity from the waste of artistic glass furnaces. The project team collected data on heat loss, gas consumption, comparative costs and efficiencies involved, leading to the creation of a new mathematical models for furnace operation as well as determining feasibility for various generating efficiencies and payback periods for cogeneration. The project concludes by suggesting follow up studies utilizing Stirling engines.
