Supply chains are highly complex structures in the global economy and are influenced by many criteria such as customs regulations, trade embargoes, raw material shortages, but also changing climate conditions and dynamic market developments. In addition, demanding customer requirements, the need for flexible solutions, pressure to optimise cost structures and sustainability requirements pose permanent challenges for supply chain management in the chemical industry. Find out how Haltermann Carless deals with this and what investments the chemical company is making to offer its customers modern and reliable supply chain solution. An interview with Florenz Treschau.
How can climate neutrality be achieved for the whole world over the next 50 years without limiting prosperity?

Dr Harald Dialer, our Chief Commercial Officer, talks about current developments, our goal to be the first commercial producer of SAF in Germany and explains why ramping up SAF production is such a challenge.
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.

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.
