We are SGL Group – The Carbon Company, one of the worldwide leading manufacturers of carbon-based products. Our Business Unit New Markets provides smart answers to the global mega trends by converting SGL Group’s Broad Base into Best Solutions for its customers. In partnership with cus-
tomers, New Markets is opening up new opportunities for a fascinating material – carbon – in the areas of construction, energy and mobility. With its unique properties, carbon offers immense potential for innovative applications. Nothing can replace it when it comes to finding sustainable solutions.
In the field of building air conditioning systems, the Business Unit New Markets opens up new possibilities with its ECOPHIT® products: ECOPHIT construction materials produced from expanded natural graphite not only reduce the energy requirement and operating costs of air conditioning but also make it possible to utilize renewable energy sources. This is because they provide rapid, even distribution of heat or cold and enable air conditioning systems to be operated at very low temperatures.
