André Ommer – Dipl.-Ing.
Managing Owner, Achievements
Design and expansion of glassglobal.com network on internationally leading exhibitions, congresses and seminars, cooperation with industry magazines and expert papers. André Ommer has privileged access to substantial know-how about glass related transactions, past, present and planned, worldwide.
Development of "Online Glass Engineering" – Online calculation tool for mass balance of glass melting processes and related variations hereto to enable glass makers to evaluate reduction of energy consumption or emissions such as NOx or CO2.
Development of “Furnace Control Systems“ for on-site real-time measurement and evaluation of furnace parameters with remote diagnosis and input option for optimization and settings.
2007-2008 Successful conclusion of various research programs (supported by AIF by Ministry for Research & Technology) covering future glass technology e.g. with topic „Development of new control algorithms, development of new
high capacity MSR components for time optimized control of
glass melting process as well as new burner technology for
the glass melting process. All projects were concluded
successfully in time.
Compilation and visualization of an international benchmark
analysis for flat and container glass makers on the basis of
glass furnace data.
He was a key person in the realization of a solar glass plant
for solar glass production (float glass). He disposes about
market knowledge regarding the supplier chain until
marketing of the glass as well as international sales of
Development of ggENOx as revolutionary concept to reduce
NOx in a container glass melting furnace in conjunction with
significant reduction of energy consumption, allowing glass
makers to comply with new target values set by EU.
Compilation and visualization of business plans for different
industry segments, e.g. float glass manufacture, suppliers.
Development and design of a holistic concept for glass
recycling to covering the whole value chain in glass making
as a cradle-to-cradle process to optimise production and to
reduce raw material and energy consumption.
He is an appreciated partner to equipment buyers and sellers, as well as to
glass professionals and decision makers on large scale investments and long
term projects in the glass industry. He is experienced in equipment and
treatment of glass in cold end from cutting to coating and has a sound
overview over the market covering glass making equipment form batch to
quality inspection equipments.
In addition, André has commercial insight into the raw materials and
equipment used by operators at production locations for glass, worldwide, his
understanding of the cost and benefit of using BAT equipment and processes
are most outstanding and valuable and consequently.
