“For SCHOTT, it is a great honor to meet with the Federal President and his delegation inside the German Pavilion on German National Day,” said Prof. Udo Ungeheuer, Chairman of the Board of Management of SCHOTT AG. “The Federal President was visibly impressed by the wide variety of products that SCHOTT has contributed towards the German Pavilion. We consider our participation in the German Pavilion to be a unique opportunity to make a contribution towards the good reputation that products and technologies from Germany have all over the world. We are looking to present ourselves as an innovative German company that operates internationally to both the Chinese people and the world public at this EXPO,” he explained.
SCHOTT contributes specialty glass solutions and illumination technologies to the German Pavillion: more than 1,000 square meters of architectural glasses, several hundred lighting elements, 9,000 LEDs that float inside special glasses, a 383-square meter building-integrated solar façade made of “Asi Thru” modules from SCHOTT Solar, exhibits devoted to the glass-ceramics “Ceran” and “Zerodur” and exhibition partnerships in the area of Concentrated Solar Power and photovoltaics.
On May 1st the largest world exhibition of all times officially opened in Shanghai under the motto “Better City, Better Life”. Germany is putting the motto of the EXPO into practice through the German Pavilion by adopting the theme “balancity”, a term created from the two words “balance” and “city” that stands for a city in balance between renewal and preservation, innovation and tradition, urbanity and nature, community and individual development and work and leisure.
More than 240 nations and organizations are taking part in the EXPO. The organizers are expecting around 70 million visitors before it ends on October 31.
