Please be advised that one of our affiliate subsidiaries in China made following announcement. Jiangsu Pilkington and SYP Glass Co., Ltd (JSYP) is delighted to announce the successful start up of its 'on line' coating facility which came on stream on October 28th 2009 as planned.

The coating line has been installed on JSYP's 600tpd float line in Changshu, Jiangsu Province.
 
JSYP is a 50/50 Joint Venture between the Pilkington Group Limited of the UK, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Nippon Sheet Glass Group of Japan, and Shanghai Yaohua Pilkington of China.
 
The 'on line coating' plant is a state of the art Chemical Vapor Deposition process designed and installed over the last 12 months by Pilkington with JSYP assistance. The plant is now in every day operation with a capacity to coat over 100,000 tonnes of Pilkington Energy Advantage™ per year. The glass is coated whilst flowing over molten tin in the float bath during the glass making process and this results in a coating that is extremely hard and more durable than uncoated glass. It can be processed in any way like normal float glass and its low e energy saving properties, coupled to its unbeatable color control make it ideal for commercial buildings, curtain walls and residential buildings. The hard coat low e glass has many advantages for customers all over China.
 
The Pilkington Energy Advantage™ family is already the world's largest selling on line low e glass and the new plant in JSYP is of the latest design and already operating well ahead of expectations. The coating line will have the capacity to produce glass capable of saving up to 120,000t of CO2 emissions per year when installed. This will make a significant contribution to China's objective to reduce CO2 emissions without any negative effects on industry or jobs.
 
The parties understand that the Chinese Government already recognizes the benefits of energy saving glass, which is required in public and commercial buildings. It is expected that the Chinese authorities will extend such requirements to make the use of such glass a standard requirement in residential buildings (as it is in Europe and North America). The strong growth in this sector is therefore expected to continue for many years.
