Glass production involves two main methods – the float glass process which produces sheet glass, and glassblowing which produces bottles and other containers.

Glass production

  • Technology

    Photovoltaic glass industry base covers an area of 400 mu at present the high quality float glass production project has come to the period of the trial-production. Super white solar rolling glass production project is under construction. Photovoltaic glass industry base relying on the two key projects will extend the glass industry chain coating film engineering glass and the solar energy industry related glass processing projects. The local government believes that the base will build to the largest scale glass and most advanced glass Production Park.

  • Objective

    This invention reports a novel method for recycling of thin film Cadmium Telluride photovoltaic modules at the end of their life and manufacturing scrap. This process allows for minimum glass fine generation requires little or no acid compared to other methods and generates a pure cadmium and tellurium product at recoveries in excess of 80 percent. In addition the process allows for the recovery of a clean soda-lime plate glass product.
