Monday, 16 October, was an important date for Pilkington Italia, for the community of Venice and for the entire Veneto Region as the warm-up of the new furnace for glass production at Porto Marghera plant commenced.

The new line, which has been upgraded with the latest technologies, will produce roughly 600 tons of float glass daily, including Pilkington Optiwhite™.

The product - a low-iron extra clear float glass with very high light transmission - is practically colourless, and the green cast inherent to other glasses is not present.

It is therefore ideal for use where glass edges are visible or where a neutral colour is desired. As its light transmission is higher than clear float glass, it is perfect for applications where transparency and purity of colour are desired.

The multi million Euro investment that NSG Group made will also include the installation of emission control systems in the atmosphere, in compliance with environmental regulations, and create approximately 60 new employment opportunities.
