Whether it’s in breeding algae, refrigerators in supermarkets, high-efficiency fuel cells, solar streetlights or what will soon be the world’s largest solar telescope – very few people know where SCHOTT components are used or even make things possible. The latest “solutions” magazine offers information in print and online form on the latest application highlights and product innovations as well as background information about key events at SCHOTT like 25 years of the Otto Schott Research Center, 125 years of the Carl Zeiss Foundation or the presentation of the 2014 Otto Schott Research Award.
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.
