At present, the energy turnaround is one of the hot topics in Germany. This energy turnaround can hardly be accomplished without the massive use of plastics. For example the production of wind turbines rotor blades, which are becoming ever larger, would not be feasible without the use of fibre-reinforced plastics (GFK, CFK).
Thanks to their excellent insulating properties particularly foamed plastics applied for the insulation of buildings make a significant contribution to energy efficiency.
Solar applications focusing especially on the long-term weathering resistance of the components constitute another market.
The SKZ continues extending its existing competence in these business areas in order to ensure that we and our customers are well prepared for the future also in these fields.
