Getting Greener

With environmentally friendly products and technologies SCHOTT is strengthening its ecological commitment. Eco-glasses are being offered e.g. in the Home Tech and the Optics division, but also in the Electronics & Biotech segment. A lot more green products are under development or in the product pipeline.


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.

SCHOTT fuel cell technology

Top materials for fuel cell technology

SCHOTT offers extremely heat-resistant glasses and glass-ceramics for use as sealing materials in high-temperature fuel cells. These products help protect these components against the wear of high temperatures and humidity and maintain the high efficiency of the fuel cells-  (= SOFC, Solid Oxide Fuel Cell). Thanks to its know-how, SCHOTT is also one of the leaders when it comes to further developing the SOFC technology. Fuel cells are considered to be an important contribution to the future power supply.
