Shaping a more circular future for electrical and electronics
Environmental consciousness is reforming the E&E Industry
Today, people are increasingly concerned about the irreversible impact that our way of living is having on our planet. Driven by trends in sustainability and carbon neutrality, technology giants in the electrical and electronics industry are exemplifying corporate social responsibilities by uplifting sustainable ambitions as strategic priorities. Circularity is becoming the key innovation driver for electrical and electronics brands. It’s safe to say, the future trends of new product development will include the use of environmentally friendlier and lower-carbon emission materials.
Comprehensive PCR solutions with upcycling technology
Advancing toward carbon neutrality through alternative raw materials
Through collaborating with value chain partner, Covestro is already supplying ISCC PLUS certified polycarbonates, to which renewable feedstock from bio waste and residues has been attributed via mass balance approach. , bringing along significant carbon footprint reduction.
In addition, with the use of renewable energy, Covestro plans to deliver world’s first climate-neutral polycarbonate resin later this year, which is expected to cut carbon emissions completely for these selected products from cradle to gate.
Promoting circular design strategies
Collaborating with value chain partners
Collaborative effort is required from all stakeholders to achieve a circular economy. Covestro collaborates with our partners to build up the recycling value chain. For example, we have partnered with Chinese beverage provider Nongfu Spring and recycler Ausell to build a recycling value chain to meet the growing demand for high-quality, traceable, recyclable plastic pellet as raw material. Moving forward, Covestro is eager to work with ever more partners across the value chain to achieve our fully circular ambition.
“Moving towards a circular economy is our commitment to the world. Covestro is working closely with the value chain to shape a circular future for the electrical and electronics industry through our comprehensive green solutions.”
