BASF Podcast: Chemistry makes wind energy more economical11.02.2009 - (idw) BASF SE
In this podcast you will learn how chemistry improves the cost effectiveness of environmentally and climate friendly wind energy.
It is generally less well known that modern wind turbines would hardly be conceivable without innovative solutions in chemistry. The huge rotor blades can be up to 60 meters long and are subjected to enormous dynamic stress. Here chemistry comes into play. It makes it possible to lower the production costs of wind turbines. This allows wind energy to be a sustainable contribution to the future energy mix with other energy sources on the way to a low carbon society.
BASF Corporate Communications started a regular bilingual Podcast service in April 2007 to report on BASF's innovations and research and development activities in an easy-to-understand, informative and entertaining way.
Listen to the audio reportage with Dr. Gregor Daun (Business Manager Epoxy Systems at BASF), Ivan Costantini (Industrial Coatings Relius) and Jörg Hermes (Global Sales Manager Windenergy at Industrial Coatings Relius).
