Climate change is happening as we speak, at a faster rate than ever before. A large contributor to this are the greenhouse gasses (such as carbon dioxide), caused by generation of fossil-fuel-based energy. With global climate agreements being ratified, many countries have ambitious plans to aggressively reduce their emissions. Additionally now, more than ever, making the transition to Energy generated by Renewable sources, has a critical role to play.
DEMAND - SUPPLY
At the demand side, “Energy” can be split into Electricity, Heat and Mobility. At the supply side, “Energy” can be split into Generation, Storage and Transport (=Grid).
Let us introduce you to the area of Generation, for which Mitsubishi Chemical Advanced Materials has a wide range of material solutions to offer.
The areas of Solar Energy Generation, Battery Manufacturing and Hydrogen-based Energy Storage also offer countless possibilities for our plastics to support the economical operation of your systems. Due to their diverse properties, thermoplastic materials have special advantages to offer, which we will introduce to you here shortly.
Solutions for cell production and solar farms
Solutions for energy storage in batteries (“Electro-Chemical storage”)
Solutions for energy storage in high-energy liquids and gasses (“Chemical storage”)
Balancing social and environmental demands with economical sustainability is essential to fulfil our role in society in the future. Our high-performance material solutions contribute to sustainable energy management and limitation of global warming. Our corporate sustainability concept is called KAITEKI
A successful Energy Transition is driven by two factors – climate targets, and the cost of energy. In most cases, the most frequently used parameters for this price benchmark are the
The total cost will finally define the competitiveness of Renewable Energy, and drive the change to a more sustainable planet.
