A new ASTM International standards developing activity, Subcommittee E44.20 on Glass for Solar Applications, was formed during a virtual meeting on Sept. 29. Meeting participants, including government representatives, equipment and product manufacturers and members of ASTM International Committees E44 on Solar, Geothermal and Alternative Energy Sources and C14 on Glass and Glass Products approved the formation of the subcommittee, which will be under the jurisdiction of Committee E44.
