For you, our solar glass technologies at Glassman USA
Glassman USA is the leading conference for the North American market dedicated to the hollow and container glass industries, focusing on innovations that are shaping the future of glass manufacturing, such as sustainability, digital manufacturing and process efficiency. More on Glassman USA.
Moving towards greener manufacturing is a deep trend for the glass industry.
An in-depth discussion will be made by Bruno Malphettes, Business Development for Solar Glass Projects at Fives Stein, a subsidiary of Fives group, in his presentation “Producing solar glass with Fives technologies in local markets”. Solar photovoltaic (PV) technology has become a significant share of electricity generation in several parts of the world and the domestic manufacturing of PV modules continues to grow year after year. Currently each PV panel holds 90% of its weight in glass and 99% of this glass is made in China: glassmakers should be prepared to produce PV glass close to end markets to gain a competitive advantage over imported glass.
Recognizing the needs of glassmakers worldwide, Fives will showcase its solutions to reduce carbon emissions, increase productivity and reach high quality standards at the stand B5 of Glassman USA:
