Covestro implements PV facility with tailored PU composite at Shanghai site

Covestro successfully implemented a pioneering distributed photovoltaic (PV) power generation facility at Covestro Integrated Site Shanghai (CISS), incorporating the innovative materials developed by Covestro.

Covestro implemented PV power generation facility at its Shanghai production site.

 

At Covestro Shanghai production site, 3,000 square meters of PV modules were installed on rooftops, parking lots and unused areas. The facility commenced operations in late January, and is projected to generate 6 million kilowatt-hours annually for on-site consumption.

 

Coupled with the existing PV facilities, the site’s total solar power generation is expected to reach 6.5 million kWh annually, resulting in a reduction of about 5,000 tons of carbon emissions, which is equivalent to saving about 2,000 tons of standard coal on an annual basis.

 

Leveraging own material expertise

 

In this project, Covestro also aims to leverage its materials expertise to contribute to the dynamics of the photovoltaic sector. Partnered with China’s Zhejiang Deyilong, Covestro introduced PU composite frames made of Baydur resin.

 

These frames, utilized in the solar facility, demonstrate superior anti-corrosion performance. This durability renders them ideal for regions prone to high humidity and salt spray. Besides that, as non-metallic insulating materials, PU composite frames mitigate Potential-Induced Degradation (PID), thereby enhancing the power generation efficiency of solar panels.

 

Additionally, PU composite offers an 85% reduction in cradle-to-gate carbon footprint compared to traditional aluminum in solar frames due to its less energy-intensive production process.
