What does Sustainbility means for us
Sustainability, to us, means taking deliberate actions to ensure the well-being of our planet and future generations. It's about responsibly managing resources, reducing our environmental footprint, supporting our communities, and innovating for a brighter, more sustainable tomorrow. Sustainability isn't just a buzzword – it's an integral part of our company's DNA, guiding everything we do.
Being green in all waysFor us, sustainability in designing and producing technical products like semiconductors in our new factory means prioritizing eco-friendly materials, adopting energy-efficient processes, and adhering to stringent ethical and environmental standards to minimize our ecological footprint while delivering high-quality products. See our commitment in action.
RenewableElectricity from natural sources, such as sun and wind, varies over time and can not be fed directly into the electricity network. Our IGBTs are at the heart of the power conversion and shape electricity into the right form and stability so it can be fed into the grid.
IndustryElectric motors drive various industrial applications, such as ventilators, cable cars, and paper-processing machinery. Such applications require motors with a variable speed and power output. With our IGBT power semiconductors, the power-flow and shape of electricity can be nearly lossless controlled, saving up to 30 % in energy compared to previous methods (like lossy mechanical throttling.)
Electric VehiclesGreener Transportation requires a shift from fossil fuels to more sustainable sources. Electricity can be generated with renewable energy and it can be stored either in batteries or as hydrogen. Cars, buses, trucks and trains are either directly powered by electricity via catenaries or with on-board stored energy (originating from batteries or hydrogen). Our IGBT semiconductors drive the electric motors of the vehicles with a conversion efficiency way beyond 95%.
