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.
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.

At the time of its foundation, modern technologies such as valve bottoms or air-cooled condensation were used and a biological wastewater treatment plant was put into operation. Now the production site is again taking important steps towards the future: for more sustainability and clear customer added value.
The transportation sector is changing - and what has long been an essential part of research and development in the automotive sector is now increasingly finding its way into aviation: sustainable solutions to reduce CO2 emissions.
