Mobility futures: eco-friendly materials and solutions
Always on the move
The world depends on transportation. As more people inhabit the earth, they and the goods they need are increasingly on the move. This growing mobility is increasing the demand for environmentally friendly, safe and comfortable means of transportation and solutions.
The transportation sector accounts for around 14 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions.
By 2050, the number of vehicles worldwide is estimated to reach 2.7 billion – four times as many as at the start of this century. And it means that carbon dioxide emissions could increase fourfold as well.
Third largest climate offender
The transportation sector already accounts for around 14 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions. It ranks third among the sectors contributing to the worrying rise in climate-damaging substances in the earth’s atmosphere.
The automotive industry is working intensely on fuel-efficient models and alternative drive concepts, such as electric mobility.
Materials from Bayer MaterialScience support these advances, and the company also develops innovative solutions for air, sea and rail transportation.
