In the course of the energy turnaround, geothermal energy generation is becoming an increasingly important topic alongside electricity generation from solar, wind and hydro power. Generating sustainable electricity is more topical and urgent than ever. Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) plants play an important role, because they open up ways of generating electricity and heat that were not possible in the past. Find out here what advantages and future opportunities the process offers.
Without Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF), a short-term reduction of CO2 emissions in aviation is not feasible. The European Green Deal and the subsequent Fit for 55 package therefore focuses on the increased use of biofuels in aviation. In the framework of these packages, the raw materials used in production are generally classified under the term ‘generations’ But what precisely is the meaning behind this classification? Find out more about the different feedstocks and future trends.
High-quality solvents are important basic raw materials for the paint, coatings and adhesives industry. Only highest quality guarantees best functionality in end-use applications. After all, automotive coatings, sealants and building adhesives or building paints should be characterised by a long service life and few impurities. Haltermann Carless focuses on the market requirements of its long-standing customers and has relied on extensive quality assurance for its high-purity paraffinic hydrocarbons for generations. Find out more about how this is achieved.
Today, renewable energy options determine the worldwide political, public and economic discussions about more sustainability in energy production. In addition to wind, water and solar energy, the topic of geothermal power is increasingly becoming the focus of attention. What precisely is geothermal energy and what are the options for the future? Here you can find out more about extraction, processes and worldwide use.
The paints and coatings industry is far more sustainable than one might think - and not only since the European Green Deal. The industry has long been working to meet the high demands placed on modern paints and coatings: Environmentally friendly, durable, harmless, easy to handle. In addition to occupational safety and processing, the right raw materials play a decisive role. Paraffinic hydrocarbons are part of the solution when it comes to sustainability. Learn more here.
CBD oil has long been part of our everyday lives. Whether as a lifestyle product, food supplement or in cosmetics. High quality is of great importance, because impurities can lead to a loss of effect, taste and digestibility. The extraction process used plays a decisive role, along with other factors. Find out why CBD production with high-purity hydrocarbons ensures the best quality.
For Haltermann Carless, sustainability is not a buzzword, but has always been an important part of our corporate strategy. It includes not only our products, but also our processes, our production sites and our administration. We are looking at all aspects of our company in order to achieve our goal of making a holistic contribution to climate and environmental protection. Learn more about the projects we have successfully implemented and launched in 2021.
In modern aviation, the awareness of the importance of sustainability and environmental protection is increasing. With growing passenger numbers, high air freight volumes and rising oil prices, alternatives to fossil jet fuel and solutions for reducing CO2 emissions are increasingly in demand. Alternative fuels, so-called Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF), are a crucial step towards climate-neutral air travel. Learn more about the different technical solutions and the approaches that are already a reality.
Pentane blowing agents are widely used in the insulation industry. Since the performance and properties of Polyurethane (PU) and Polyisocyanurate (PIR) foams can vary considerably - depending on the isomer used - Haltermann Carless has conducted a study to take a closer look at the behaviour of blends consisting of the three isomers n-Pentane, iso-Pentane and Cyclopentane. The results of these tenary blends look promising and might offer additional benefits to the insulation industry.
Hamburg is an important production site within the Haltermann Carless Group and has a long tradition that began as early as the end of the 19th century. Today, the site has developed into an innovative and globally leading producer of modern performance fuels for research and development in the automotive industry. This includes a comprehensive portfolio of test and reference fuels, custom grades for first fill or two-stroke engines as well as reference lubricants. With its ideal location - close to the port of Hamburg and connected to all modes of transport - the site serves its global engine development customers with innovative and renewable fuel formulations.
