Wie man Glasscheiben perfekt um die Ecke biegt
Using an oven to heat bulk glass to just below the transition temperature, they can make sharp bend glass by using a laser along the bend line to pinpoint heat the bend edge so it can plasticly deform in the desired way.

Deakin researchers develop concrete solution for recycled glass | Deakin
some types of colored glass aren't recycled due to the difficulty in cleaning it up to clear again, so being able to use it elsewhere is a plus as an alternative to high grade sand. But this is polymer resin based concrete (substituting cement) so that's a different problem...

About us
International Cookware SAS is the licensee in Europe for the pyrex brand, and still makes the original high quality borosilicate glass Pyrex. That type is usually indicated by using a logo with all capital letter PYREX, like the old stuff. US pyrex is now weaker soda-lime glass.

Bioactive glass fillers reduce bacterial penetration into marginal gaps for composite restorations - Dental Materials
Using non-inert glass rather than inert glass powder in dental fillings, they can hold off secondary tooth decay in the dental filling/tooth interface much longer, and apparently a minor increase in hardness.

High Elastic Moduli of a 54Al2O3-46Ta2O5 Glass Fabricated via Containerless Processing : Scientific Reports
New high strength glass, but it requires a high temperature air levitation furnace setup (which is expensive to operate), and uses tantalum, which is stupid expensive. The glass by weight of the component ingredients alone would cost more than silver by weight.

シースルー太陽電池モジュールを発売 | ニュースリリース:シャープ
New semi-transparent glass solar PV panels, intended to be filler wall panels in apartment balconies, allowing you see through the balcony panel somewhat and produce power. Since Japan has so many apartments with balconies, but comparatively little roof access for those same apartments, this is interesting compromise solution for green energy distributed generation, as well as improving the visibility/lighting/aesthetics of a balcony/veranda area. This also works pretty well in Japan because of certain building codes, which sometimes outright require southerly facing balconies, as well as protecting those balconies' sun access by limiting the shadows of neighboring buildings. So in practice, if you have a large apartment block going in a residential area without a huge concentration of tower blocks, you should have almost unrestricted access to the sun on teh balcony side of the tower block.

Halotechnics - Power through storage
Current solar salts are near 585C max. New eutectic salt can reach 700C with similar materials compatibility. They also have a new glass derivative with a depressed melt point of 400C (normal window glass is 600C) that can run up to 1200C. The glass based thermal storage seems to be intended for hot air aeroderivative turbines/combined cycle setups rather than just steam turbines. Claim low cost components of the eutectic salt, discovered using advanced automated chemical mixture analysis.
