Higher efficiency for pharmaceutical companies

adaptiQ™ is the first ready-to-use system for pharmaceutical packaging that allows for pharmaceutical vials to be freeze-dried, weighed or closed inside the nest. SCHOTT developed adaptiQ™ in close cooperation with filling line manufacturers to ensure that pharmaceutical companies can use this system at their current facilities, make more flexible use of production lines and lower their total operating costs.

How glass keeps nuclear reactors safe

Earthquakes, tsunamis, and other weather events and natural disasters are some of the biggest challenges facing nuclear power plant operators today, especially with the Fukushima nuclear power plant meltdown in 2011 still fresh in many minds. These are exactly the kinds of external events that nuclear power plants must prepare for, according to a recent report from the National Academy of Sciences about the lessons learned from Fukushima. And in one aspect of nuclear safety, glass is helping them do so.

Porous glass: Strong and Versatile

When observed under an electron microscope, porous glass resembles the elegant structure of coral. Yet don’t let the material’s beauty fool you; like many kinds of glass, its true gift is its strength. Porous glass is an often unsung hero in fields as diverse as medicine, aerospace, defense, and oil and gas. The glass is created through a special process in which borosilicate glass is melted, rapidly quenched, and then phase separated in a carefully controlled environment.
