Syensqo announces sustainable mobility and technology collaborations at JEC 2024

Paris, France. From March 5 to 7. Booth K58 Hall 5

Alpharetta, February 19, 2024 - Syensqo, previously part of Solvay group, has for decades contributed to shaping the use of composites across aerospace and automotive by developing innovative lightweight and high performance materials compatible with efficient processing technologies. At this year’s JEC World, the company will showcase new advancements and partnerships supporting the trends of electrification, hydrogen propulsion and bio-sourcing as part of its ambition to advance humanity.

“We are proud to showcase our new company and strong focus on sustainability at JEC World 2024,” said Rodrigo Elizondo, President of Syensqo Composite Materials Global Business Unit. “The show is the first international event that Syensqo is exhibiting at and we are looking forward to showcasing the legacy that got us here as well as our plans for the future. We have bold ambitions and exciting new partnerships to develop technologies that will have a broad impact in the years to come.”

“Syensqo has been a long standing supporter of JEC World, among the most significant composites shows for the industry,” said Marc Doyle, Executive Vice President Composite Materials of Syensqo. “We are proud to have a large presence at the event and to use it as a platform to launch cutting edge material innovations serving multiple markets. This year promises to be another vibrant edition!”

Inroads in hydrogen propulsion

Syensqo recently announced its partnership with Climate Impulse, a green hydrogen-powered non-stop flight project around the Earth, that will demonstrate how concrete solutions can help build a cleaner and more efficient world. This challenge is made possible by Syensqo’s expertise and technological ingenuity. Syensqo’s composites, surfacing and adhesive films will be critical components of the aircraft structure and hydrogen tanks. 

New partnerships to enable electric advanced air mobility

Syensqo was selected by Schiebel, manufacturer of unmanned air systems, as advanced material supplier. The Schiebel Unmanned Air System (UAS) CAMCOPTER® S-100 is being operated in the defense and civil sectors. Syensqo’s carbon fiber composite materials, used on the fuselage in combination with Titanium, enable a wide range of payload and endurance combinations. The CAMCOPTER® S-100 will be on public display at JEC World on Syensqo’s booth.

Syensqo and Manna have signed an agreement for the supply of advanced materials used to manufacture delivery drones. The European company aims to make lightning-fast suburban deliveries affordable, green and safe. Syensqo's lightweight materials will make this possible. 

Bio-based carbon fiber innovation advancements

Syensqo is committed to providing its customers with sustainable solutions that support the planet and help them achieve their environmental ambitions, by reducing their Scope 3 emissions.

At the show Syensqo will showcase the work done with Trillium, focused on creating sustainable raw materials for carbon fiber applications. Trillium has made significant progress on the design and installation of a small-scale Bio-ACN (bio-based acrylonitrile) facility and delivered initial representative pilot scale samples of Bio-ACN to Syensqo. Syensqo has converted the supplied Bio-ACN to lab scale samples of a Poly Bio-ACN precursor suitable for the creation of research quantities of bio-based carbon fiber. Through 2024 Syensqo and Trillium expect to further advance on their journey towards fully bio-based carbon fiber composites.

Visitors are invited to re-discover Syensqo at Booth K58 in Hall 5 and to join the live presentation at the Agora 5 stage.
