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.

Porous Power

A chemically and mechanically highly stable porous glass from SCHOTT offers potential for many industries: with its abundant pores, CoralPor™ looks like the structures of a coral under a scanning electron microscope. In fact, this is why this innovative product was given this name. CoralPor™1000 is ideal for use in electrochemistry, for instance as glass junctions for reference electrodes, or as powder for heat-resistant coatings for space crafts, turbines or engines. CoralPor™2000, on the other hand, is used in chromatography for use in separations or for use as a synthesis substrate.

Prefilled syringes for sensitive biotech drugs

With syriQ™ InJentle, SCHOTT has developed a solution for use with highly sensitive biotech drug substances. A special geometry of the glass barrel does not require any tungsten pin during the glass forming process. The specially developed design offers yet another advantage: during storage, the drug does not come into contact with the needle or the adhesive that holds it. A tamper-evident closure shows whether the syringe has already been used. This closure can still be opened easily even after longer storage periods. Yet another advantage: The staked needle does not stick into needle shield, therefore the needle remains sharp. This makes injections less painful for the patient.
