Lade GmbH and INEOS Styrolution: charging wallbox for e-mobility made with sustainable styrenics
Frankfurt and Mainz Germany, March 14, 2023 - Lade GmbH, a new German startup company dedicated to e-mobility and energy management, announced today that it has selected INEOS Styrolution’s sustainable Luran® S ECO material for their line of charging wallboxes.
Founded only three years ago, Lade GmbH offers a broad portfolio of scalable e-mobility charging solutions for car park operators, companies, retail, buildings and real estate, municipalities, and public utilities. Recently recognised with the German Design Award Special 2023, the company’s wallboxes will be based on INEOS Styrolution’s Luran® S ECO 757G B40, a grade with 40% bio-attributed material. Luran S, an ASA polymer features high surface quality, good impact strength, enhanced color fastness, and excellent chemical resistance. The product is ideal for outdoor use with superior performance when exposed to UV irradiation and heat. Processability is trouble-free due to the high flowability of the material.
Luran S ECO is made using renewable feedstock, based on a mass balance process certified by ISCC PLUS. Luran S ECO is currently available with a renewable content of up to 50%. This results in a carbon footprint reduction of up to 58% compared to fossil-based Luran S.
Lade GmbH’s wallbox – LADEmini - is a compact, scalable and comprehensive AC charging system. It provides tailor-made charging solutions for various needs, from single-family homes to company fleets. LADEmini also offers future-proof features like load balancing, smart and sustainable charging, software backend and much more.
Dennis Schulmeyer, Founder and CEO of Lade GmbH, says: “INEOS Styrolution’s line of ECO products goes hand in hand with our own vision. Luran S enables our sustainable application approach and offers superior aesthetic at the same time.”
Stefan Roettel, Key Account Manager at INEOS Styrolution, adds: “We are proud to be working with a visionary company like Lade GmbH. I am particularly excited about the entrepreneurial spirit that drives the organization and commitment to furthering society’s transformation to e-mobility.”
