Guardian to Showcase Solar Glass Products at Concentrated Solar Thermal Power Summit in Seville, Spain, Nov. 11-12

Expertise on CSP mirrors to be presented at breakout session; product nominated for Innovation AwardAuburn Hills, Mich., Nov. 9, 2009 – Global glass manufacturer Guardian Industries will present its line of solar glass products at the third Concentrated Solar Thermal Power Summit, Nov. 11-12 in Seville (Booth #7).  Guardian will feature its EcoGuard Solar Boost-LP, laminated parabolic mirrors for concentrating solar power (CSP) applications, which provides best-in-class solar reflectivity, concentrating efficiency and durability.

Samples of the company’s monolithic parabolic mirrors will also be shown, as well as its float, pattern and coated solar glass products.

Guardian’s EcoGuard Solar Boost products were nominated for two awards as part of the Summit – CSP Innovation and CSP Competitiveness. Winners will be announced at a ceremony Nov. 11.

During the Summit, Michael Magdich, general manager, Global CSP and CPV for Guardian, will present the latest on Guardian’s EcoGuard Solar Boost performance levels, the company’s global asset base and its ability to provide the solar market with superior solutions that address current and future market needs.

Guardian’s EcoGuard Solar Boost-LP has a best-in-industry average of more than 95 percent solar reflectivity at AM 1.5 (ISO 9050). It has recently achieved 96.75 in tests conducted by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). The mirrors are constructed in a process similar to a car windshield, with two layers of glass laminated together with a PVB interlayer. A mirrored surface is contained within the laminate on the backside of the forward glass. The thin front glass results in a shorter transmission path and industry benchmark reflectivity performance.  Guardian has years of experience in developing systems and efficiencies in such manufacturing processes.

EcoGuard Solar Boost-LP has also been extensively field tested for proven durability and validated using numerous accelerated test protocols. The combined glass and PVB layers provide superior rigidity and durability compared to traditional monolithic glass systems. The laminated construction also results in optimum damping, wind resistance and reduction of subsequent field component damage.

More than 650 energy experts will be meeting at the Summit, designed to provide industry professionals the very latest information on costs, regulation, financing, permitting and cutting-edge technologies.

"As a leading glass manufacturer, our goal is to optimize the energy investment of our customers," said Scott Thomsen, Guardian group vice president and chief technology officer. "We are driving the technology forward to meet the current and future demands of the solar industry.”
