ITMO researchers have created a surface that can turn normal glass into a smart surface. This technology can be used in the production of AR screens that equip users with additional information about what is happening around. The surface will also be able to convert solar energy into electricity. The research has been published in Laser & Photonics Reviews.


The innovative solution of the researchers is a thin film based on halide perovskites, semiconductor materials with extraordinary optical and electronic properties. These films are affordable to produce, they are used to create LEDs and solar cells with efficiency factors exceeding traditional technologies. The perovskites used in the project can transmit around a half of the light distinguished by the human eye. However, they reflect too

Glass Shortage Threatens Solar Panels Needed for Climate Fix

(Bloomberg) — The world’s biggest solar power company says a shortage of glass is raising costs and delaying production of new panels, throwing a wrench into China’s plans to accelerate its shift to clean power.

Prices for glass that coats photovoltaic panels have risen 71% since July, and manufacturers are struggling to produce it fast enough to keep more than a week’s worth of sales in inventory, according to Daiwa Capital Markets. The shortage comes as the solar industry turns toward bifacial panels, which increase both power output and glass requirements.

Xinyi’s shares have soared as solar glass demand rises

Solar panel producers like Longi Green Energy Technology Co. have asked the government in China, home to most solar manufacturing, to address the situation by approving new factories. Otherwise price hikes risk making solar power too expensive and halting the industry’s momentum.

New Garden Room at National Aviary opens with bird-safe glass

New addition showcases acid-etched, solar control low-e glass by Walker Glass and Vitro Glass to provide views, bird-safety, energy performance

Pittsburgh, Oct. 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Vitro Architectural Glass (formerly PPG Glass) announced the opening of the new Garden Room at Pittsburgh’s National Aviary, which showcases bird-safe glass supplied by Vitro and Walker Glass. As a sponsor of the project, Vitro Glass also will financially support the National Aviary’s educational programs for classes and school groups.

Known formally as “The Garden Room at the National Aviary,” the new venue offers sweeping views of Allegheny Commons Park and the historic Rose Garden while providing versatile wedding, corporate and classroom space. Solarban® 72 Acuity™ solar control, low-emissivity (low-e) and low-iron glass by Vitro Glass was installed in insulating glass units (IGUs) on three sides of the structure. The IGUs are fabricated with Walker Glass’s AviProtek® acid-etched bird-safe glass (Pattern 213)

Ardagh Group’s Recycled Glass Briquettes win Sustainability Award

LUXEMBOURG, Oct. 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Ardagh (NYSE: ARD) has won a Sustainability Award in the inaugural ‘Pre-Commercialised Innovation’ category for its method of producing remeltable briquettes from the fine particle glass rejected during the recycling process, allowing 100% of recycled glass to be remelted into new glass bottles and jars.

The rejected glass makes up 10% of glass collected for recycling and is currently unusable in glass manufacture because it contains loose organics and CSP (ceramic, stone and porcelain) which can cause blistering in new containers. It is typically diverted to road aggregate or is lost to landfill and can never be recovered.

Driven by the goal to maximise cullet recovery for remelt, Ardagh worked with various partners to develop the recipe and method to produce briquettes from the rejected glass, which can be melted safely in the furnace without any
