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.
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. Reductions in our energy use therefore were in prime focus and a backdrop to the development of our sustainability strategy during the year. Read more about our key projects and product developments through 2022 that have added value for climate protection, society and our customers.
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.
As a pioneer of high-performance fuels, Haltermann Carless considers itself as a key enabler of sustainable mobility. What opportunities does the company see for its business today? What concrete contribution can it make to reducing greenhouse gas emissions? An interview with Dr. Bruno Philippon - Senior Vice President Business Unit Mobility - responsible for the global fuel division at Haltermann Carless and ETS Racing Fuels.
The possibility of refrigeration is an achievement for the preservation of food and thus for greater variety. However, refrigeration units or cold storage facilities are criticised for their continuous operation in terms of climate protection. Find out here how modern refrigeration systems can nevertheless be energy-efficient and make a threefold contribution to sustainability.
In times of crisis, basic human needs become more important. Climate change, war, supply chain issues and land scarcity all negatively contribute to the world's food supply. These all make it all the more important to protect crop yields. Haltermann Carless has long been committed to developing aromatic solvents for crop protection.

Industrial lubricants reduce friction between moving surfaces. They are used to modify surface properties, regulate temperature and remove debris. In industry, they protect equipment and machinery and ensure extended service life of mechanical components. Low-viscosity base oils are important raw materials for many lubricants, coolants and metalworking fluids. Read more about the properties of modern base oils and the benefits they provide to industrial lubricants.
No matter whether they are used in bathroom joints or kitchens - silicone sealants are an important product in the DIY sector. It is a material that exists in many areas of everyday life. High-quality ingredients, such as the low-viscosity extender oils in silicone sealants, are a decisive factor and one of reasons for Haltermann Carless’s recent investment in plant technology. The goal: to produce even better, higher purity products for the base oils industry. Read more here.
Today, if there is one important issue that companies are concerned about, it is solutions and concepts for more climate and environmental protection, better energy efficiency and the reduction of CO2 emissions - in short, for more sustainability. But how exactly is this defined? What are the global or national goals? And how do companies implement it? We give a brief overview.
Alongside biofuels, sustainable synthetic fuels, also known as E-Fuels, are an important building block in achieving the European climate protection goals. Decisive for the market success of sustainably produced fuels are technological openness and the creation of clear political framework conditions. As a groundbreaking process, Power-to-Liquids (PtL) offers options for a sustainable energy supply in addition to the production of sustainable fuel. Learn more about this.
