Driving the transition to a circular economy in the E&E industry
Sustainability survey in the E&E industry
- the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions
- waste management and recycling
- energy management
- water management
Renewable attributed material solution, well-suited to electronics
Polycarbonates and polycarbonate blends combine excellent service life and light weight with inherent flame retardancy, dimensional stability and varied grades of transparency, making them a logical choice for applications in the electrical and electronics industry. In addition, the products are available in partially recycled grades to contribute to a circular economy.
More sustainable polycarbonates: our holistic approach for the E&E industry
We are working closely with the electrical and electronics industry to accelerate the transition towards a circular economy. With our material solutions we can help our customers reduce greenhouse gas emissions, design products to be recyclable and build material cycles.
More sustainable drop-in solutions for a low carbon footprint in the EE industry
*Climate-neutral is the result of an assessment of a partial product life cycle from resource extraction (cradle) to the factory gate, also referred to as cradle to gate assessment. The methodology of our Life Cycle Assessment is based on the ISO 14040 standard, critically reviewed by TÜV Rheinland on the basis of a plausibility check. The calculation considers biogenic carbon sequestration based on preliminary supply chain data and replacing electricity grid mix with renewable electricity used for the manufacturing process. No offsetting measures have been applied. Biogenic carbon uptake is taken into account in the calculation of the carbon footprint.
Collaboration along the value chain in the transition to a more circular economy
- Reduced footprint: Recyclates and renewable raw materials lower the environmental footprint.
- Comprehensive: E&E producers enjoy more sustainable polycarbonates along with expert services.
- Collaborative: We work with electrical producers to close loops and develop material solutions.
- Credible: Eco-labels such as EPEAT are considered in our product development.
- Brand-oriented: Electrical and electronics brands can enhance their sustainability credentials.
