German Innovation Award 2018
With the development of the innovative glass optical fibers PURAVIS®, SCHOTT has launched a „green“ product to the  market that is manufactured in an environmentally friendly manner and, at the same time, transmits even whiter light than  conventional glass optical fibers.

Not just the glass itself, but also the entire proprietary manufacturing process, in which neither arsenic nor antimony are used, is environmentally friendly. In other words, any product that is equipped with PURAVIS® already complies with the EU directives RoHS and REACH today and is ready for future environmental requirements – worldwide.
