EME has supplied the batch plant to pharmaceutical glass manufacturer Schott for its glass tubing greenfield production plant in Zheijiang Province, China.

The new plant, started up in the fourth quarter of 2020, will produce high-quality borosilicate glass tubing – the base material for pharmaceutical packaging such as vials, ampoules, syringes and cartridges.

EME, with the support of our daughter company Shanghai Precision, supplied the batch plant including batch transport and cullet return system on a turn-key basis, including building, process equipment and the control system.

The batch plant is designed for several furnaces and different glass types.

For the process technology, EME adhered to the strict Schott requirements in the dosing, weighing and mixing areas in order to obtain Schott's highest quality pharmaceutical glass.
