Reducing carbon emissions from heavy industry

Reducing carbon emissions from heavy industry

Power and heavy industry sectors accounted for around 60% of annual emissions in 2019. Heavy industry describes sectors like steel, cement and petrochemical. The processes and fuels used in these sectors present significant and unique challenges when it comes to reducing emissions.

With the goal of net zero by 2050 fast-approaching, let’s take a look at some of the challenges of heavy industry and carbon emissions, and some of the ways they can be addressed. 

How our innovative insulation materials improve sustainability

How our innovative insulation materials improve sustainability

With the US now back in the Paris Agreement, climate policy is very much front and center on the agenda for all of the world’s major economies. Here in the UK, key pieces of legislation are coming in in the next decade to support our government’s quest for “net zero” greenhouse gas emissions in 2050. Firstly, by 2025, all new developments will be banned from installing gas boilers. And by 2030, the sale of internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles will also be banned.

Compression pads for batteries – why are they useful?

Compression pads for batteries – why are they useful?

As the electric vehicle (EV) market gains momentum, and we creep ever closer to the 2030 deadline for an end to the sale of fossil fuel vehicles in the UK, innovation in the field of EV batteries is happening at a rapid pace. 

Even closer deadlines include 2025 for Norway, meaning manufacturers must work to increase the storage capacity and life cycle of battery packs whilst balancing performance, cost and safety. 

In this article, we’re going to examine why compression pads for electric vehicle batteries are useful in ensuring optimal performance, extending the life of the battery pack and increasing the safety of the vehicle occupants.
