Chemistry and the Business of Clean Energy

Written by Staff Writer

Energy supply from wind and solar power is an important pillar for achieving global climate targets and greenhouse gas neutrality and conserving fossil resources. The switch from fossil to renewable energy sources is also accompanied by electrification of the important sectors of transport and buildings: the mobile and stationary future is electric.

As a leading high tech polymer manufacturer, Covestro is pioneering advanced chemistries that allow for cutting edge technology deployment in the energy sector. This includes polyurethane resin-based wind turbine blades, lightweight yet robust polycarbonate housings for electric vehicle battery housings, powertrains and for EV charging stations, and even advanced coatings for solar voltaic panels.

In an effort to fulfil its vision to become fully circular, Covestro also offers some of these products and many others in climate-neutral versions.
