AGC has been a leading manufacturer of architectural, automotive and display glass for more than 110 years, supplying high-quality products worldwide. Today, the company leverages its technological expertise in the fields of glass, electronics, chemicals, and ceramics to provide a variety of cutting-edge materials and services that meet the growing demand for autonomous driving and other mobility services.

One of the highlights of AGC’s exhibits at CES will be the company’s FIR (far infrared) camera-compatible windshield, featuring special glass that allows far-infrared rays to penetrate, something which ordinary automotive glass does not. This allows sensor fusion of regular visible and FIR cameras mounted behind the windshield and reduces the risk of accidents involving pedestrians and cyclists at night or in bad weather.

Another highlight of the exhibit will be AGC’s glass composition and processing technologies; these provide the strength and optical capabilities needed to mount and deploy the cameras and the LiDAR (light detection and ranging) components required for autonomous driving. A wide range of other solutions will also be exhibited, including the 5G-sub6 Glass Antenna and the 3D Curved Cover Glass For Automotive Interior Displays. For a complete list, please refer to the Appendix.

Yoshinori Hirai, President & CEO of AGC, commented, “CES is one of the world's most influential technology trade shows, and we see it as the best stage on which to showcase AGC's capabilities to the world. We strongly believe our next-generation mobility-related products and solutions will create a buzz among CES visitors. The materials we offer have an appeal that can only be successfully conveyed when they are seen and experienced up close. We hope that as many people as possible will learn firsthand about the value we offer and make good use of our products.”

Please stop by our booth and see the various ways in which AGC is pushing the boundaries of technology. If you would like to interview an AGC spokesperson, please contact us.

Major Landowner Federations to Support AMR Against Nordic Mining ASA (NOM) in the Norwegian Supreme Court27.1.2023 12:59:00 EET | Press release

Key landowner federations declare 3rd party intervention in support of Arctic Mineral Resources’ appeal to the Supreme Court in the case against Nordic Rutile AS (NRU), a wholly owned subsidiary of Nordic Mining ASA (NOM). Arnold Rørholt, lawyer and AMR’s Chairman, welcomes the 3rd party intervention in favour of AMR: “The intervention will ensure that the Supreme Court, as opposed to the courts of lower instance, appreciates the principal nature of the case and the Constitutional issues underpinning it, and interprets the Mineral Act in light of these – to the favour of AMR.” “The Western part of the Engebø garnet and rutile province contains around half of the proven reserves in the Engebø deposit, as well as a majority of inferred resources and will support a highly profitable 50 years plus fully underground mining project without a need for deposits on land or in the sea” continues Rørholt. Arctic Mineral Resources (AMR) and the federations argue that the two mineral categories – o

Ipsen Receives CHMP Negative Opinion for Palovarotene as a Treatment for Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva in E.U.27.1.2023 09:00:00 EET | Press release

Regulatory News: Ipsen (Euronext: IPN; ADR: IPSEY) announced today that the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) has recommended not to grant marketing authorization for investigational palovarotene as a treatment for the ultra-rare bone disease, fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP). In the E.U. there are currently only symptomatic treatments for FOP, which do not reduce the formation of extra-skeletal bone in patients with the condition. Ipsen will be requesting a re-examination of the CHMP opinion, based on scientific data available from the existing palovarotene clinical trial program. FOP causes permanent and continuous new bone formation in soft and connective tissues, like muscles, tendons and ligaments, a process known as heterotopic ossification (HO).1 Once formed, it is irreversible.1 The average age of diagnosis is 5 years old2 and ultimately FOP shortens the median life expectancy to 56 years as untimely death is
