Reducing emissions in vehicles
Reducing carbon emissions in cars means reducing both weight and heat in the engine. Our own road to zero emissions began nearly a decade ago when our research teams began studying the effects of wear and friction on plastics in order to develop special material types with high abrasion resistance and low friction in the extreme heat of the engine. The friction reduction they achieved means that we can now save 1 gram of CO2 for every km driven.
It isn’t just cars that emit noxious gases. Cows are responsible for emitting methane, a far more potent greenhouse gas than CO2. Which is why our scientists have developed a special feed ingredient for sustainable farming that significantly reduces these emissions.
Improving digital infrastructure & global devices
Increasingly we’re helping the world’s device manufacturers make ‘thinnovation’ a reality through smaller, lighter - and greener - materials that consume and emit less energy.
Whatever the science or solution, we’ll continue to create products that take carbon out of the equation.
