Sekab Joins Polestar to Create the World’s First Truly Climate Neutral Car

Sekab and Swedish electric car company Polestar join forces to start collaborating in the project to create the world's first truly climate-neutral car. The Polestar 0 project started in 2021 with a goal to produce a truly climate-neutral car by 2030 by eliminating any emissions from raw material extraction, material manufacture, product manufacture and end of life.

Sekab will contribute to the project with bio-based chemicals. Sekab's green chemicals have a wide range of application areas. They can be used in the production of various forms of plastics and rubber, lubricants, paints and glues. They can also act as intermediate chemicals in numerous industrial processes with an indefinite number of potential areas of application.

Sekab innovation team will collaborate with Polestar on defining the green chemical opportunities for the vehicle.

"Sekab's bio-based chemicals help our customers phase out unsustainable products and processes. We are a part of a green industrial revolution that is fundamentally changing how we produce goods and services. To collaborate and find new paths and solutions with like-minded players is our core business. We're proud to partner with Polestar and provide our chemical expertise on the path to climate neutrality," says Emil Källström, CEO at Sekab

Hans Pehrson, leader of the Polestar 0 project, says: "A project of this ambition requires partners at the cutting-edge of their industries and which are fully engaged in our bold vision. That's why I'm looking forward to Sekab becoming a crucial part of our team as we find solutions for developing an entirely climate-neutral supply chain.

"Sekab's expertise in bio-based chemicals will be invaluable in our mission and will play an integral role in pioneering new and innovative technologies to achieve what has so far been impossible."
