“We are amazed at Covestro – their creativity in using biomass, waste and residues, and renewable energy. And we are pleased that the advanced Makrolon® RE-Bio-Circular attributed PC¹ solution will be used to mass produce the Xiaomanlv inspection robots. This shows both parties have taken the first step towards a "climate neutral" goal!"
"We are proud to partner Alibaba DAMO Academy in developing this brilliant inspection robot – the first application of our Makrolon® RE-Bio-Circular attributed PC¹ solution in the smart device field. Our innovative material solution matches the quality and performance of petroleum-based products, while achieving significant carbon footprint reduction of the material.”
- Reduce Carbon Emissions: High quality, certified³, mass balanced polycarbonates - bio-circular resources replace fossil resources
- Safe and Reliable: Good dimensional stability, rigid, weather & flame-resistant.
- Low Water Absorption: Excellent dimensional stability, protects robot’s sophisticated internal mechanisms
- Flexible Design: Low-cost injection molding meets design and mass production requirements
1 Polycarbonates with an attributed share of up to 72% bio-circular feedstock via mass balance.
2 Cradle-to-gate is an assessment of a partial product life cycle from resource extraction (cradle) to the factory gate. The Life Cycle Assessment is based on ISO 14040 / 14044, critically reviewed by TÜV Rheinland considering biogenic carbon sequestration based on preliminary supply chain data and replacing electricity grid mix with renewable electricity for Covestro, without offsetting measures.
