How Twaron® is making automotive more sustainable
For an automotive industry working hard on sustainability, tires play a key role. Up to 90% of a tire’s environmental impact happens during the use phase through fuel consumption and the associated exhaust gases. To be truly sustainable, automotive component solutions must enable more efficient tires that lead to less fuel consumption in ICE’s and increase battery mileage in electric vehicles. That is where Twaron® comes in.
Building a green hydrogen future with Twaron®
Hydrogen is playing an increasingly significant role in the global transition to sustainable energy. Unlike standard oil and gas pipelines, hydrogen pipes must be able to withstand extremely high levels of pressure of long distances. Reinforced thermoplastic pipe (RTP) made with Twaron® offers a great solution.Explore the case
Energy-efficient conveyor belts thanks to Twaron®
Conveyor belts help industrial miners to move millions of tons of materials from A to B. To get the job done, belts need to be strong and durable. Using Twaron® aramid carcass in your conveyor belts can reduce energy consumption by up to 25% compared with steel-cord carcass, while reducing CO2 emissions substantially. Find out the economic and environmental benefits of using Twaron®-reinforced conveyor belts for your mining operation.
Endumax® saves weight and emissions in air freight.
With growing pressure on the aviation sector to reduce emissions, the materials used in air freight containers can help carriers to fly lighter, saving energy and reducing emissions. With their excellent strength-to-weight ratio, aramids, and our high-performance UHMWPE material Endumax® offer a sustainable alternative to traditional container materials such as steel and aluminum.Explore the case
Endumax® and aquaculture: a positive net result
Aquaculture faces large environmental challenges. The plastic used in aquaculture equipment is often ill-equipped to deal with harsh offshore conditions, causing it to break or degrade. We work with equipment suppliers to develop greener, more efficient aquaculture solutions.Explore the case
Teijinconex® reduces the cost of ownership of protective garments
Up to 84% of a garment’s environmental and financial impact occurs during the use phase, including through industrial washing at high temperatures, drying and ironing as well as repairs. Teijinconex® is bringing that number down. Protective garment based on Teijinconex® last longer and require less maintenance while consuming less energy during the use phase.
