Driving Toward Bio-Based Automotive Technologies

With society increasingly embracing the concept of a circular economy, industries are starting to move away from fossil-based technologies to more sustainable, renewable, bio-based resources for the production of chemicals, materials and fuels.

In the automotive industry, there is a definite drive in this direction – with a clear focus on lightweight materials, alternative power trains and the adoption of bio-based products.

Huntsman’s commitment to supporting the automotive industry and its sustainability ambitions is reflected in our ongoing development of technologies that incorporate increasingly higher levels of bio-based components – without detracting from performance or quality.

Currently, Huntsman has four bio-based products (ACOUSTIFLEX® HR BIO, RUBIFLEX® HR BIO, RUBIFLEX® H BIO AND RUBITRIM® SR BIO) for use in the automotive industry. These materials offer similar performance levels to current technology solutions and enable original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to achieve above a 9% level of bio-based content, according to ASTM-D6866-12.
