“Our decades of experience in researching and developing innovative solutions that contribute to sustainability will benefit us in the implementation of our climate protection target,” emphasizes ALTANA CEO Martin Babilas. “We want to leave our footprint on innovations, not on emissions.”
Wire enamels from ALTANA’s ELANTAS division, for example, are increasingly being used in electric vehicles and extend their service life. BYK offers a solution for the recycling of polypropylene in car batteries, which was previously not recyclable. An aluminum pigment in wall paints developed by the ECKART division ensures that up to 50 percent of the heat is radiated back from the walls into the room. A PVC-free seal from the ACTEGA division helps beverage bottlers save 10,000 tons of steel for their crown caps. This corresponds to the weight of the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
