Being material-smart is about being aware of the alternatives that exist with your choice of material. It is possible to replace materials such as steel or aluminum with a plastic material that has the same quality and function, but at the same time results in savings of CO2 emissions.
We can help you achieve your environmental targets by knowing the carbon footprint our materials leave, which means that you can calculate your own environmental impact on your produced products.
Our experts have already helped a large number of customers in many different industries to save tons of CO2-e by optimizing their choices of raw materials.
“A customer chose to replace PA6 with a custom PP, but they are just an option. The possibilities are endless.”
– Henrik Palokangas, sustainability specialist for polymeric materials.
