Hi All

A Dutch brewery has become the first business in the world to begin using a cyclical iron-burning furnace.

Iron is burned in furnaces, fulfilling a key industry requirement for high heat that isn’t covered by many other renewables. Then, the resulting oxidized rust waste is recycled back into newly re-burnable iron fuel using electrical energy that can be from clean sources.




Hopefully, this technology will be scaled-up and widely adopted.

Industrial furnaces were always going to be a tough nut to crack when it comes to sustainable energy sources. Governments should be providing incentives to encourage the development and adoption of technologies like this.

It was also encouraging to read that their might be a carbon neutral alternative for jet fuel which is another one of those tough nuts.
