Silicones. Powering more efficient energy production and use.

Silicones enhance renewable energy technologies Silicones play a key role in energy performance and renewable energy technologies. A relatively modest quantity of silicones can be sufficient to obtain a large increase in the efficiency of processes, energy consumption, transmission and use of materials.

A selection of energy applications using silicones:

COMPUTERS

WIND TURBINES

SOLAR PANELS

LEDs

GREEN TIRES

A total of

metric tons

of silicone products were sold
to the energy market

With a direct sales value of

million euro

1.7 Million people across Europe are employed in sectors that are related to silicone products. Silicones are part of a bigger value chain that create jobs and enable a better quality of life for us.

By using products made with silicones, you generate on average 9 TIMES LESS GREENHOUSE GASES than were emitted during manufacturing and disposal of that product.
