Driver for more sustainability: Mass balance in the chemical industry
The use of sustainable raw materials has long been an important part of the chemical industry's production processes and strategic efforts to make a contribution to Greenhouse Gas reduction and enhanced climate protection. The mass balance approach is a major and important step in driving the transition to alternative raw materials and the achievement of a full circular economy. But what exactly does mass balance mean and how does it contribute to a more sustainable product? The following article provides an overview.
Interview: Mass-balanced Pentane creates Greenhouse Gas (GHG) savings
Haltermann Carless introduced a group-wide Sustainability Strategy in 2022. Offering customers alternative solutions builds on the companies' commitment in the strategy to drive portfolio change and bring GHG reductions in the supply chain. The mass balance approach is now another important building block that Haltermann Carless is implementing in order to be able to offer GHG reduced Pentane. How exactly this works, how challenges were solved and what added value customers can expect are explained in an interview by René Tessmann, Senior Vice President Business Unit Industrial and Chris Hutchinson, Senior Vice President Corporate Development & Sustainability.
Advantages of aromatic solvents for agrochemicals
High purity and tailor-made solvents are crucial for the agrochemical industry. Aromatic solvents must meet the highest standards and guarantee quality in agrochemical applications enabling high crop yields while at the same time offering the highest possible protection of the environment. Haltermann Carless provides an optimised portfolio for the industry and, in addition, a wide range of services.
Cyclopentane for energy efficient renovation of historic buildings
Building insulation is playing an increasingly important role in reducing CO2 emissions and achieving European climate protection goals. Comprehensive insulation is nowadays mandatory in many countries for new buildings. Retrofitting in existing buildings, especially those that are historic, on the other hand, poses many challenges and requires good planning and the right material. Find out here how polyurethane (PU) foam panels and the blowing agent Cyclopentane can contribute to the solution.
Lubricants: Important facts about industrial lubricants
Without industrial lubricants, many moving mechanical elements cannot function smoothly. Today, the industry uses high-performance lubricants with properties that are adapted to the respective process conditions. Here you can find out the most important facts about industrial lubricants.
Haltermann Carless solvents for the pharmaceutical industry
The production of active ingredients (AI) in the pharmaceutical industry is a crucial area in which consistent quality and stable supply of the products must always be guaranteed. The pharmaceutical industry is not subject to major fluctuations - pharmaceuticals are always needed - and must therefore remain continuously capable of production and delivery. Learn how Haltermann Carless can support the pharmaceutical industry.
Cyclopentane: Important building block in the cooling of pharmaceuticals
For pharmaceuticals to retain their effectiveness, there are a number of regulations governing their handling, but especially their proper transport and storage. In addition to safety and hygiene regulations, the obligation to cool a whole range of medicines and other important products for health care is of great importance. Refrigerators and refrigeration logistics play an important role in the pharmaceutical industry. Efficient insulation and high-quality raw materials such as Cyclopentane are a key component for safe cooling performance. Read more.
Haltermann Carless Annual Review: Trendsetting milestones in 2022
2022 was another very challenging year, with global and multi-faceted challenges becoming more visible than ever. The topic of energy was particularly in focus.

Rigid polystyrene foam: Thermal insulation reduces the CO2 footprint
Building insulation is far better than its reputation. In addition to energy-saving measures and a new, efficient heating system, façade, ceiling and roof insulation is an important component in saving energy in buildings and thus in reducing greenhouse gases. Rigid polystyrene foam makes an important contribution to this. Read more about the importance of building insulation and why Pentanes from Haltermann Carless play a crucial role in this.
