Thank you for your query about the safety of your photobioreactor window glass.

As our Library focuses on the art and history of glass and glassmaking, it is beyond our scope to answer technical questions in detail. You may wish to contact one of the following organizations for assistance and advice: 

The Scholes Library at Alfred University, New York State College of Ceramics. They have a substantial collection of technical information about glass. Their reference desk number is: (607) 871-2951. Alfred’s library catalog is available for searching on the web: http://scholes.alfred.edu

The Glass Division of the American Ceramic Society (Columbus, Ohio) Website: http://ceramics.org/acers-community/division-pages/glass-optical-materials-division

The American Ceramic Society, P.O. Box 6136, Westerville, Ohio 43086-6136 ; Phone: (614) 890-4700 ; FAX: 614/899-6109 ; email: info@acers.org
