Bioplastics, biodegradable
The future of battery production
CO2 emissions reduced by up to 20%
High strength, highly formable: High-
manganese steel
To date crude oil has been seen as the most important material in the chemical industry. ThyssenKrupp is developing an alternative: a process in which bacteria produce lactic and succinic acids. Lactic and succinic acids can be used to produced bio-based plastics, which are biodegradable. Around 4.5 million tons of polyethylene could be replaced by bioplastics every year in the coming years.

High strength, highly formable: High-manganese steel

Material experts from Hoesch Hohenlimburg and ThyssenKrupp Steel Europe have developed a completely new steel which is both exceptionally strong and readily formable. The secret is in the alloy, which has a high manganese content. One of the strengths of the new steel is its energy absorption, for example its ability to dissipate impact energy quickly.

CO2 emissions reduced by up to 20%

Concentric Cam is the name of a new system from ThyssenKrupp Presta which controls the valves in gasoline and diesel engines. This allows fuel combustion to be adapted optimally to different driving situations, which in turn reduces n itrous oxide and particulate emissions by up to 40 percent and CO2 emissions by up to 20 percent.

The future of battery production

ThyssenKrupp System Engineering develops integrated production systems for lithium-ion batteries – the batteries used in electric vehicles and to store renewable energy. The development team optimized the entire production process, from base chemical handling to finished battery. The result: highly automated lines for cost-effective mass production. Video, 2 min.
