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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
In the context of the European Green Deal, the topic of energy efficiency and building insulation is of growing importance. Legal regulations such as the EU's Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) regulates energy savings around new and existing buildings. Thermal insulation plays a particular role, along with other factors. Read how climate protection can be best addressed in the building industry.
