Pilkington Group was agreed to sign a contact with Shanghai Yaohua Pilkington Co., Ltd. on Sep.9. Pilkington would install the second large-scale energy-saving glass on-line coated equipment in the new float glass factory in Changshu.


The new factory will produce Pilkington Energy Advantage Low-E glass. This glass is the main material for helping the buildings reduce the consumption of the energy. One coated line can reduce 120,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions.


The both sides has cooperated once before. They established Jiangsu Pilkington Yaopi Glass Co., Ltd. and its first coated equipment production line will be operated soon.


Julian Barnes, the executive director of Pilkington Architectural Glass in China, said, The Chinese government has recognized the benefits of energy-saving glass. The Government has stipulated in the public and commercial buildings to use energy-saving glass. We really hope that the government can further expand the scope of regulations to ask civilian homes also use energy-saving glass (the British Government has requested), which not only can make a significant contribution to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, but also the glass industry development and employment opportunities have any negative impact.
