The future is green – for the coatings industry too!

Germany in summer 2017. The nation of carmakers is shocked. A court in the south of the country has ruled in favour of a diesel driving ban. From 2018 many diesel cars will be banned from the roads of Stuttgart. Other German cities are sure to follow and other European cities have already imposed bans in the city centres. I believe this will also provide a boost for electromobility and the reawakened environmental consciousness of politics will undoubtedly extend to other fields. Which will in turn increase consumer awareness and lead to more environmentally friendly and sustainable products. Sooner or later, this is going to hit the coatings industry. Is our sector prepared?

While collecting topics for the American Coatings Show 2016 Daily, someone came up with the idea to discuss "Green Marketing” in one of the issues. I happily accepted the suggestion, but then I started asking myself: "What exactly is "Green Marketing” in the first place?

Bio-based coatings: Anything else but cheesy

Adopting renewable innovations is often a challenging task and current percentage ratios of sustainable components remain quite low. So what about a totally bio-based and fully controllable deposition process for the formation of biological coatings? How does that sound to you?
