    Hydrogenation plant for Pentane production: Supply security for companies

    Hydrogenation plant for Pentane production: Supply security for companies

    The demand for Pentanes is high. The reason for this is that this raw material is particularly important in insulation materials for construction and refrigeration appliances. As a foaming agent in Polyurethane (PU) and Polystyrene (EPS, XPS) systems, it ensures excellent insulation performance. Efficient insulation leads to cost savings and contributes to CO2 reduction. The demand for high-quality Pentanes is therefore high - we at Haltermann Carless are familiar with the market requirements and can offer you tangible solutions. Read more about our new hydrogenation plant and the benefits in the following article.

    Cyclopentane – to keep things fresh and cold for longer!

    Cyclopentane – to keep things fresh and cold for longer!

    Fresh, chilled or frozen products have become an indispensable part of our lives. Particularly sensitive goods such as fish or vegetables need an uninterrupted cooling chain to guarantee the quality of the products throughout the entire processing route. It is not surprising that the requirements for the energy efficiency of refrigeration appliances are particularly high, as energy consumption represents a significant contribution to costs. Insulating materials for refrigeration appliances, foamed with Cyclopentane, therefore make a valuable, positive contribution to this balance.
