Protecting natural resources and developing sustainable solutions with low environmental impact – these are critical areas where we are using our innovative strength. While we have achieved many of the environmental goals we have set, we realize there is still much more to do – with our products, our manufacturing processes and our business practices. Today, however, we can promise that we will continue to innovate for a resource-saving future for our company, for you, and for the communities in which we live and work.

1 Million KG less CO2
Together with our strategic partner Scott Bader, we succeeded in significantly reducing the CO2 footprint of our liners with unsaturated polyester resins (UP). We call it SAERTEX-LINER UPgreen.
By using a more climate-friendly manufacturing process for our resin systems, we reduced CO2 by 270,000kg in the last quarter of 2020.
Working together with our customers, our next goal is to save 1 million kg of CO2 per year. However, just as important for our customers is that these improvements have not changed the technical properties of the liner system. All product approvals remain valid as before. Upon request, we will provide you with a SAERTEX-LINER UPgreen certificate that shows your contribution to CO2 reduction per quarter. It's a win for you and the environment!
