Renewable energies

Renewable energies

In response to a growing demand for energy and a need to preserve the environment, the Arkema Group is innovating to speed up the development of renewable energies. It provides new materials which improve the performance of solar panels and lithium-ion batteries, as well as a heat transfer fluid for concentrated solar power plants (CSP), thereby strengthening the competitiveness of these business segments.

The global demand for energy is expected to double by 2050. Given the optimized use of fossil fuels and the necessity to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, resorting to renewable energies has now become inescapable. The Arkema Group has made this issue one of its major fields of innovation and is involved in growing new markets, both in terms of energy production and energy storage.

  • PVDF Kynar® Film: Protect the backside of the panels against humidity and solar aging. As a result, the lifespan of panels is extended beyond 20 years. (Business Unit: Technical Polymers)
  • Evatane®: Designed for the encapsulation of crystalline silicon cells, a costly and fragile material. It contributes to the production yield and longevity of the panel. (Business Unit: Functional Polyoefins)
  • Apolhya® Solar: New generation flexible photovoltaic modules. As no crosslinking is required for the implementation of this product, the production time of the panels is reduced, and end of life recycling is easier.
  • Elium®: Our new Elium® thermoplastic resin, Arkema is increasingly active in the wind power market. In particular it allows energy savings. Bonding takes place at ambient temperature: molds no longer need heating! Furthermore, thanks to a depolymerization process developed by Arkema’s R&D, composite parts that contain the Elium® resin are recyclable. This is a big first and a real plus for wind turbine blade manufacturers, who are mindful of the future of their installations as well as the issue of recycling.
  • Sartomer: Solar cell EVA sheet encapsulant and Anti PID (Potential Induced Degradation) materials. This new protective technology is greener than green: it is solvent-free and emits zero volatile organic compounds. (VOC)
  • Methan Sulfonic Acid (MSA): Acid catalyst for Bio-Methanol production, a renewable fuel.  (Business Unit: Thiochemicals)
  • Jarytherm®: Fluid that can improve the heat transfer efficiency of boiler. (Business Unit: Oxygenated solvents)

 

Electronics & Electric cables

Sartomer resins in new generation screens

The Arkema Group is mobilizing its innovation resources to provide solutions for the electronics market. This sector is now facing the technological limits of silicon-based components. As a leading fluorine specialist, Arkema provides fluoro-specialties development and production to key partners where fluorine makes a difference. The Foranext® range leverages our fluorination expertise to create fluorogases used in a variety of electronic and semiconductor applications from plasma etching to chamber cleaning and more.

 

When a giant South Korean electronics company recently presented an ultrathin TV screen that can be rolled up like a tapestry, our researchers definitely took notice. The totally flexible screen, pliable as a sheet of paper, is based on a cutting-edge technology that Sartomer is working on.

Electronics has always been a major application for our resins, which are used in television screens, tablets and smartphones to enhance definition and brightness. The challenge is to adapt to each new generation of products in a fast-growing market.

Oil & Gas

Oil & Gas

Extraction, transportation of oil and gas, refining and petrochemicals: Arkema’s products are present throughout the entire chain. Its additives improve production yields, its technical polymers protect pipelines, and its expertise in thiochemicals enhances desulfurization processes and gas odorization.

Exploring for oil and gas ever further afield and deeper in the ground, processing crude oil into products that comply with increasingly stringent environmental standards: the oil and gas industry is faced with a number of challenges.

As a true partner, Arkema designs innovative products and materials for the different stages of the chain while also providing ad hoc services.
