Abstract

Thermal radiation and heat insulation glass J. Krope & D. Goricanec Department of Chemical Engineering, Faculty of Technical Sciences, Smetanova 17, 62000 Maribor, Slovenia ABSTRACT In our paper the transition of infrared radiation through the earth's atmosphere and windows made of heat insulation glass is compared. Special attention is paid to double heat insulating window glass with IR reflective coating and argon filled interspace. The possible reduction of heat losses and the resulting reduction of pollution is outlined. INTRODUCTION Energy is the basis of human development: it provides heat and light, while in the production process it represents one of the fundamentals for the production of goods, it is the source of life which deserves careful protection. Energy production strategy and the utilisation of the produced energy may have a significant impact on the entire social and economic development of a country. Thus, care for improved utilisation of heat sources should
