Sabic launches new electrification initiative; focus on EVs

Saudi Arabia - Sabic, a global leader in the chemical industry, has unveiled BlueHero, an expanding ecosystem of materials, solutions, expertise and programs aimed to help accelerate energy transition to electric power.

The company’s starting point with BlueHero is support of the automotive industry’s mission to create better, safer and more efficient electric vehicles (EVs), with an emphasis on improving structural battery components with unique flame retardant materials and solution development expertise.

The automotive industry is leading the charge in moving toward new, more sustainable mobility systems. This includes a major shift towards battery powered EVs, which can convert over 77 percent of electricity into movement compared to only 12 to 30% for vehicles with internal combustion engines.

In addition to this high performance, EVs also emit no tailpipe pollutants and are typically responsible for significantly fewer greenhouse gas emissions during operation – enabling important contributions to meeting global goals on climate change.
