Solvay Joins Hands with SGL Carbon to Provide Composite Materials to Build Lighter Airplanes

In January 2020, Solvay partnered up with SGL Carbon to develop high-performance composite materials to build lighter airplanes. The decision was taken because of the urgent need to reduce the aircraft’s weight and reduce emissions in the atmosphere. As per a company official, “This partnership will help us to create a new carbon fiber composite material for the aviation industry. As this is only the beginning, we are screening these materials for using them in one of our programs. The era of lightweight aircraft is about to take off to a whole new level.”

The automobile industry was affected severely because of the COVID-19 pandemic. In Japan, South Korea, Italy, U.K., Germany, and U.S., automakers showcased a direct impact of the pandemic in 2020.
