ENERGY EFFICIENCY AT ANVA

AnVa Polytech pursues a constant development work of its entire business, where energy consumption and working with sustainability issues are parts of a bigger entity. At the Swedish Energy Agency’s website, you can read more about what we planned to achieve in 2017.
 
We measure efficiency as a result of the total energy consumption of the factory divided with kg rubber compound produced. Since 2017, when the article was written, the factory has become 38% more energy efficient.
 
In 2021, we achieved an energy efficiency of 11%. Resource optimization is created year after year without major initiatives. Instead, the result originates from constant small improvements throughout the organisation. There is still a lot left to be done and we are looking forward to make new progress within energy efficiency during 2022.

Climarub - high performance with less CO2 emissions

Climarub is our new rubber material developed to reduce the environmental impact. It can replace traditional EPDM rubber resulting in considerably lower CO2 emission.
 
Technically, Climarub performs just as well as traditional EPDM rubber. And we will of course ensure that your specific technical and functional requirements are met when defining your recipe.
 
We have an ambition to continuously strive to be a more sustainable company. Climarub is yet another step in this direction.
 
Together, we can reach your climate targets.
 

Climarub 0.7

Using Climarub 0.7 you will decrease the CO2 emissions by 0,7 kg per produced kg of rubber product. This decrease is achieved by using an ingredient which is made from recycled worn out tires instead of new fossil material.
 

Climarrub 1.3

Climarub 1.3 reduces the environmental impact yet another step. Exchanging a traditional EPDM rubber for Climarub 1.3 will reduce the CO2 emissions by 1,3 kg per produced kg of rubber product.
 
In Climarub 1.3 we have added biological raw material to the mix in addition to the recycled worn-out tires.

RECYCLED CARBON BLACK FROM SES REDUCES EMISSIONS WITH 84%

The recycled carbon black that AnVa Polytech uses turns out to have an even better environmental impact than previous measurements have shown.

In a new life-cycle analysis, LCA, from IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute, it turns out that the recycled carbon black leads to 79-84% lower carbon emissions compared to the previously estimated 60% (compared to the production of virgin carbon black).

AnVa Polytech is successfully using recycled carbon black from Scandinavian Enviro Systems for the Volvo Cars plugs assortment e.g.
