How would you describe your solution in a few words?
With underbody systems made of Ultra-Silent, Autoneum offers the most lightweight textile underfloor systems for vehicles: they are up to 50 percent lighter compared with equivalent components made of plastic and contribute to the aerodynamic of the vehicle, hence reducing the CO2 emissions.
The PET-based, glass-free mono-material contains up-to 70% of recycled polymer (bottle flakes instead of virgin material). Thanks to the vertically integrated production, almost all the trim waste are collected and and re-used in a closed-loop process.
Who are your customers?
Global car makers like BMW, Daimler, Volvo, Renault-Nissan, Toyota, Jaguar Land Rover and many others.
What are the environmental benefits of your solution?
Ultra-Silent has several positive impacts on the environment. First, it is made of 70% recycled PET (bottle flakes) instead of virgin PET, thus contributing to resource conservation. Further and even more important, it is up to 50% lighter compared with equivalent plastic components, reducing fuel consumption and vehicle emissions throughout the vehicles lifetime.
How do you manage to exist on the market?
Autoneum is the global leader of acoustic thermal solutions for the automotive industry. Ultra-Silent has convinced many customers thanks to its lightweight and outstanding durability. In additions, OEMs are more and more sensitive to environmental sustainability and appreciate the high recylced content of Ultra-Silent technology.
