For the best thermal and acoustic insulation, the only choice used to be triple glazing. But it’s a compromise: triple glazing makes for extremely thick glass, noticeably reducing light transmission. AGC is committed to developing products with better environmental performance in order to improve the energy efficiency of buildings and homes. It would be revolutionary to have glass with the comfort and performance of triple glazing, but that is as thin and light as single glazing. A challenge to take on!
AGC had been exploring and researching vacuum-glazing innovations for several years, but the real momentum began after joining forces with Panasonic to combine their plasma screen technology for consumer electronics with AGC’s glazing expertise. Using the Panasonic technology for producing insulating glass meant AGC needed to design a production line with entirely tailor-made machines and integrate this equipment into a continuous production flow, meeting the requirements of the glass industry in terms of automation and reliability. Thanks to a three-way collaboration between Panasonic and the AGC teams from the Technovation Centre and the Lodelinsart plant (the Belgian AGC plant which houses the new production line) this unique production line was designed, constructed within 6 months’ time and is now fully operational
The final result is a double glazing made up of two sheets of glass of 3mm thick, including one coated with a super-insulating layer, separated by a vacuum space of just 0.1mm. Small cylindrical pillars, spread throughout this vacuum space and practically invisible, prevent the two sheets from touching as a result of external pressure.
This vacuum glazing, named Fineo, delivers the same energy performance as triple glazing with no compromise on style. By comparison with triple-glazing, a same-sized Fineo pane is 4 to 5 times thinner, and a third of the weight. With its thin profile it can integrate seamlessly into renovation projects or new constructions alike. Unlike other vacuum glazing technologies, Fineo - exclusive to AGC - has no visible evacuation port and features very slim edge seals, giving you the most unobstructed view possible.
The new production technology involved for Fineo meant AGC needed completely tailor-made machinery, able to operate in a continuous flow for an efficient production line, and in accordance with the glass industry’s requirements for automation and reliability. With Fineo vacuum insulating glazing, AGC introduces a new generation of thin lightweight ultra-high performance glazing with unrivalled insulation power and very good light transmission. It can be combined with the existing range of AGC multifunctional glass (for solar control, security, acoustic insulation etc.) and is aimed at the market for new construction (housing and non-residential) and renovation.

Glass can be recycled back into glass furnaces, but difficulties in the glassmaking operation present problems that make recycling unattractive in many cases. First, glass “formulas” include not only silica but limestone, soda ash, and, in many cases, coloring agents that are blended, melted, and refined in precise operations. Reclaimed glass necessarily results in the blending of formulas and the inclusion of many foreign substances, the end products of which are highly unpredictable. As a consequence, recycled glass is considered usable for only a limited range of products, which offsets much of any cost saving
Some glass products are manufactured with about 25 percent cullet (waste glass) as a component. The use of cullet reduces energy consumption in two ways: 1) The heat required to melt cullet may be 33 to 50 percent less than that required to produce glass from the virgin raw materials, and 2) the use of cullet requires the addition of fewer additives, thus saving the energy required to mine the inorganic chemicals usually added. These energy savings from the use of cullet are partially offset, however, by the energy required to collect, beneficiate, and transport waste glass (Renard, 1982)
The separation of glass from other wastes poses a second problem to glass recycling. This process may vary from simple hand classification, accomplished during time of collection, to complex automated separation operations employing air classification, dense media separation, or froth flotation. Color separation must also be accomplished and may be done at the time of collection or via automated optical systems. So-called source separation, where glass of different colors is separated at each household, is a feature of many U.S. community's recycling programs. The separation may take place in each home, for curbside pickup, or may be accomplished at the time of drop-off at neighborhood centers. In Europe, especially Germany, this is accomplished through placement of large metal bins in densely populated neighborhoods. Three bins are provided, one for each glass color—green, brown, and white (clear)—and each station serves several thousand residents. The cullet obtained through this separation is much more likely to be useful than mixed materials containing different colors. Data collected in 2009 by the European Glass Container Federation show recycling rates of 90 percent or higher for Belgium, the Netherlands, Sweden, and Switzerland, and an overall return rate of about 67 percent for all of Europe. In contrast, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that the recycling rate for the United States is about 26 percent. Utilization of returnable bottles and containers assures that the effective use of a given container will be greatly increased, thereby decreasing the necessity for more containers and the waste produced as each container is emptied. Discouragement of “throwaway” containers promotes not only less waste production, but less energy expenditure for manufacturing as well. When the total energy consumption involved in collecting, returning, washing, and refilling glass bottles is compared to that required in delivering the same volume of beverage to the consumer in a throwaway container, a significant energy savings is apparent. One study has indicated that “a complete conversion to returnable bottles would reduce the demand for energy in the beverage (beer and soft drink) industry by 55 percent, without raising the price of soft drinks to the consumer” (Hannon, 1972). Unfortunately, many bottling companies see mandated recycling, especially through use of deposit containers, as an unmitigated horror. They lobbied successfully against deposits and returnable containers in many states in the 1980s. Reclaimed glass may be used for secondary products other than glass containers, such as for aggregate in road construction, manufacture of insulating materials, or brick production
The performance of a total of 9 different burners was investigated on the furnace: 6 natural gas burners, one LPG burner, one HFO burner and a gas atomizing oil burner. For each test a total of four burners were mounted in the underport firing mode, two on each side of the furnace. The burners were designed for a net thermal input of 540 kW. A summary of the burners used is given below
This type of burner is commonly used in glass furnaces. The single-hole burners were designed to give three gas injection velocities for natural gas: 125, 175 and 225 m/s. The nozzle design is shown in Figure 3
The double impulse burner shown in Figure 4 was designed to provide a flame that would suit the test furnace. The burner has a high velocity central gas jet surrounded by a low velocity annular gas flow. The flame length is determined by the impulse of the central flow, while the annular flow completes the thermal input. The two gas flows can be adjusted to optimize the flamelength. The greater the proportion of gas through the annulus the longer the flame will be
The company CRISTALERIAS DE CHILE S.A., has built the first stage of a new Cristalchile Glass Container Plant - Llay-Llay of approx. 27,500 m2 (Industry, offices and services) in a plot of 27 hectares, 85 kilometers north of Santiago, in the V Region
After a visit to the land, analyzed the physical environment (urban location and access to Route 5 North), the climatic characteristics (winds, orientation) and verified the groundwater level, some design considerations emerged that we thought were important to consider for the success of this Project, those that are synthesized in the explanatory memory
We think of the greatest importance the CORPORATE IMAGE with a vision of s. XXI for the Industrial Complex, image projected in the medium and long term, due to the size and complexity of the facilities and their growth, in a privileged location and a lot of presence
Within our objectives is the rationality of operation and future growth, optimizing technical and economic resources to evaluate the alternatives of construction systems, adapting the physical layout of the buildings on the ground (lay-out general) and according to environmental conditions required for this type of project in the place
An architectural solution of undulating lines for the main building, with the necessary heights for the different areas (as following the silhouettes of the nearby hills, seen from the road), incorporating the transparency in the facades by the use of glass with color screenprints blue and lines in metal, the light and the landscape are incorporated into the interior, in contrast to the buildings of Batch House (mixing plant) and the cellars of finished products, which are proposed more closed and with textures in the skins, giving movement to the facades, controlling both the height and the length of these volumes (image with contrasts in the day and night) and taking care of the interior characteristics of the enclosures and ventilation and lighting systems of the different areas
The image of the Set is consolidated in front of the road, harmonized with green areas in the front and the perimeter of the land, and leaving the successive stages of "veiled" growth, to cushion its impact on the community and the place
