SCHOTT won the Crystal Cabin Award in the category “Materials & Components” for its laminated glass composite made from Xensation® Cover glass to be used in interior sidewall window panes in passenger aircraft. SCHOTT is the first company to offer a product that meets all requirements for fire protection and mechanical reliability, and at the same time is lighter than traditional plastics-based sidewall window panes in aircraft interiors. The product was developed in cooperation with the company Diehl Aircabin.
Small but mighty, algae already play a key role in industry, including food, feed, nutraceuticals, personal care, and cosmetics. SCHOTT, with CONTURAX® oval glass tubing, and Heliae, a company that produces novel range of algae-based products, teamed up to partner with Arizona State University to demonstrate the HelixTM series of glass tubular photobioreactors that make controlled production of high-quality algae more efficient.
