The aircraft industry is facing new challenges related to production and maintenance costs. Solutions are smart sandwich design and efficient manufacturing methods. Evonik’s high-performance lightweight foam core ROHACELL® enables reaching this target. For example, the radome, many wing parts, pressure bulkhead, and the vertical and […]
Governments across the globe are setting targets for reducing carbon emissions and retrofitting existing buildings for better energy performance. Dow Corning High Performance Building Solutions delivers the advanced silicon technology innovation necessary to help create a high-performance building: one that is energy-efficient, cost-effective, safe, flexible, aesthetically pleasing, and, most importantly, sustainable.
Turning solar possibilities into everyday realities, Photovoltaic Energy is the science of converting light into electrical energy, and is achieved through the use of semiconductors, or photovoltaic solar cells. Through chemistry, innovative materials from DuPont allow solar modules to run more efficiently, last longer and make the use of sustainable energy a viable solution.
DuPont helps to drive progress in solar energy by supplying clean, efficient technology to the most remote, inhabited places around the globe. Through a partnership with Moser Baer, and through the use of DuPont photovoltaic materials, diesel fuel was replaced with safe and efficient solar energy in Ladakh, India.
Solvay has been a Solar Impulse partner from the start. Since 2004, Solvay has contributed pioneering technologies that have resulted in 13 products being used in 25 applications and 6,000 parts. These products improved the energy chain, enhanced the structure, and reduced the weight of the aircraft – crucial elements that can help to make […]
Technologies today are able to recover the energy contained in plastics. Plastics have a high energy content that can be converted to electricity, synthetic gas, fuels and recycled feedstocks for new plastics and other products of chemistry. Recovering this abundant energy also reduces waste sent to landfills and complements plastics recycling. Energy recovery is rapidly […]
Tons of high energy-content products, like non-recycled plastics and other materials, are buried in landfills every day – wasting a valuable energy source. Modern energy recovery facilities can process waste with fewer emissions than conventional fuels processed in most power plants, while innovative plastics-to-oil technologies convert plastics into alternative fuels.
Companies are transforming used, non-recycled plastics into oil, fuels, and petroleum-based products. These plastics-to-fuel technologies complement ongoing recycling efforts and offer the world a way to recover clean energy from plastics that can’t be recycled economically.
LANXESS produces innovative high-performance products and clever material combinations for many application possibilities, including lightweight solutions with very high quality but less weight, which helps save fuel through energy efficiency.
Air Products has more than 50 years of hydrogen experience and is on the forefront of hydrogen energy technology development. In many ways, hydrogen is the perfect fuel. It is abundant, the most efficient and produces no emissions when used in a fuel cell. It is non-toxic, can be produced from renewable resources and is […]
