Sustainable production: Haltermann Carless uses regional wind energy

Haltermann Carless is a leading supplier of sustainable hydrocarbons for the Life Science, Mobility, Energy and Industry sectors. Production takes place at two German sites, among others, and requires a corresponding amount of electricity. With the support of the local municipal utility, this is now being made more environmentally friendly - with wind energy from the region.

Alcohol-to-Jet (AtJ) process can help deliver sustainable flying

Alcohol-to-Jet (AtJ) process can help deliver sustainable flying

Sustainable flying is increasingly likely to become a reality with the introduction of Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF). In September 2023 the Europen Parliament approved the bloc’s Sustainable Aviation Fuel mandates in the push to dramatically cut aviation emissions. There is a growing demand for action as the legal framework and SAF quota commitments by the airlines begin to take shape. The Alcohol-to-Jet (AtJ) process is one of several production options. You can find out exactly how it works and what advantages it offers here.

What does ISCC certification mean in the context of sustainability?

What does ISCC certification mean in the context of sustainability?

There are many certification schemes on the market with regards to sustainability. In order to be relevant and make a real difference in reducing CO2 emissions, companies need to have their systems tested - as comprehensively, transparently and independently as possible. The ISCC standard is a globally recognised certification system based on a circular economy. The following article gives an overview of the testing system, the legal requirements and which raw materials, products and industries are taken into account.

Sustainable Aviation Fuel: Important driver for sustainable flying

Sustainable Aviation Fuel: Important driver for sustainable flying

Mobility has always been part of human visions and ideas, as well as a decisive driver for progress. Aviation plays a particular role in this and there is now no destination in the world that cannot be reached in 24 hours. However, air travel represents a huge challenge if we wish to ensure the protection of our climate. To make flying more sustainable, new technologies, alternative aviation fuels and new concepts are being pursued. Read more about the developments towards sustainable flying.

Water treatment: Conserving resources for the most valuable feedstock

Water treatment: Conserving resources for the most valuable feedstock

As early as 1992, the global community recognised that water sustainability concepts are of crucial importance and adopted the guiding principle of sustainable development. Since then, the protection of water resources has been one of the United Nations' greatest tasks and is anchored in the 6th Sustainable Development Goal. Water treatment plays a central role in achieving the sustainable development. In the following article you will learn more about water recycling, treatment processes and why industry is part of the solution.

Driver for more sustainability: Mass balance in the chemical industry

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.

Cyclopentane for energy efficient renovation of historic buildings

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.

Rigid polystyrene foam: Thermal insulation reduces the CO2 footprint

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.
