SCHOTT Environmental Awards
SCHOTT presented with the Corporate Environmental Achievement Award 2013
SCHOTT has received the American Ceramic Society’s Corporate Environmental Achievement Award for its sustainable manufacturing of SCHOTT CERAN®
and PYRAN® Platinum
glass-ceramics. “The Corporate Environmental Achievement Award serves as a benchmark for companies pushing the boundaries of eco-friendly products and processes in the field of ceramics,” said Dr. Richard Brow, President of The American Ceramic Society. “We unanimously selected SCHOTT based on its significant contributions to the international glass industry through the eco-friendly manufacturing of innovative products that protect our natural resources.” The award-winning SCHOTT products are manufactured without using the toxic heavy metals arsenic and antimony. Furthermore, graywater from a nearby river and renewable energy sources are used with PYRAN® Platinum. These high-quality eco-friendly glass-ceramics have kept an estimated 1,000 tons of harmful chemicals from entering the environment and thus raised the bar for efficient use of energy and water in glass manufacturing.
