ESG

Environment

As a technology company, SinterCast develops software and assembles its own process control systems. SinterCast does not have in-house manufacturing. Our environmental contributions are realised at our customer sites and in the vehicles that use our technology on the roads.

    • Up to 30% less fuel consumption in cars and trucks; up to 30% less CO2
    • Up to 20% less engine weight; up to 20% less raw materials and energy in manufacturing
    • SinterCast-CGI engines comprised of more than 90% recycled metal
    • Less engine weight enables secondary weight reduction in the vehicle body
    • Reduced foundry scrap reduces energy and raw materials needed to remanufacture
    • Life cycle energy and CO2 benefits compared to aluminium engines
    • Participation in R&D projects to develop carbon-neutral fuel solutions, including hydrogen, for internal combustion engines

SinterCast contributes to the environment by improving efficiency. Process efficiency in the manufacturing phase and engine efficiency throughout the life of the vehicle. We estimate that the SinterCast technology saved approximately one million tonnes of CO2 in 2021 and approximately nine million tonnes of CO2 since our first series production casting was produced in 1999.
