Navigating towards sustainability: our core areas in unlocking the Circular Economy

Our dedication to the Circular Economy goes beyond mere words, this is why we prioritize the key areas: Alternative raw materials, renewable energy, innovative recycling, and joint solutions for systemic change. Through these aspects, we aim to create products that are easily recyclable, optimize resource usage, incorporate recycled materials, and foster partnerships to drive widespread transformation towards a more sustainable and circular future.

But, how do we materialize this vision in concrete?

Our goal is to eliminate barriers and reconnect materials into a continuous cycle, giving them multiple lives. Our circular solutions represented with the "CQ" suffix, exemplify their commitment to the Circular Economy. Through the use of renewable and alternative raw materials, as well as innovative chemical recycling technologies, they demonstrate their Circular Intelligence and work towards achieving climate neutrality, one solution at a time. Today, we are proud to introduce our CQ product portfolio, specifically designed to deliver customer benefits. CQ, the next generation Covestro solutions. 

Alternative raw materials

  • Plastics are still a material that is mainly produced from oil. With plastic continuously needed in our society, there are people searching to replace oil and find new resources and alternative raw materials for future synthetics.

Renewable energy

  • Innovators for renewable energy

    What can we learn from the past? Which established innovations do we use, optimize, evolve? And how can the chemical industry contribute when it comes to implementing the shift toward renewable energies? There is so much potential in the present technologies that we acquire energy with.

Innovative recycling

  • Innovators for recycling

    Plastics will be the material of our future – particularly regarding challenges such as renewable energies, new forms of mobility or sustainable construction. Nevertheless, we have to solve problems related to this material. For example, by keeping raw materials in the value chain rather than wasting resources. Recycling has been around for ages, and still: there’s great potential in it.
