Cleaner mobility

Manufacturers have to comply with ever more stringent regulations on CO2 and particulate emissions while meeting consumer demand for safer and more environmentally sustainable travel. Our solutions contribute to cleaner, safer and more energy-efficient modes of transportation. We produce lightweight materials for both the automotive and aerospace industries to help make vehicles and aircraft more fuel-efficient and cost-effective.

We provide products that improve powertrain efficiency through effective thermal control and protection against corrosion. In the field of electric vehicles, we contribute to developing batteries offering higher energy density and greater power. Our high-performance silica reduces the rolling resistance of tires, which helps cut CO2 emissions, while we also produce rare earth materials that help reduce NOx emissions from diesel engines.
