Bloomberg 50 sustainability and climate leaders

The 50 Sustainability and Climate Leaders is a project led by the international business community to respond to the challenges of climate change. The documentary series will showcase the leadership demonstrated by companies in this area as well as the solutions that they have created to drive key changes in industry.

Sulzer is a global leader in fluid engineering and develops pumping, agitation, separation, mixing, processing and application technologies. The 50 Sustainability and Climate Leaders documentary on Sulzer focuses on how it is leveraging its expertise in the processing as well as transportation of liquids and gases to help make our lives more sustainable.

The documentary highlights Sulzer’s wastewater processing technologies, which are among the most efficient on the market, designed to reduce the impact of untreated wastewater on the environment. These solutions deliver the twin benefit of improved resource management and water quality.

The repurposing of plastic is another key topic. The documentary features Sulzer Chemtech’s work with Quantafuel, which provides an advanced chemical separation solution for the recycling of lower value plastic waste by turning it into feedstock for the chemical industry. This allows for the production of feedstock for making new plastics from waste plastic that could not previously be recycled.

Furthermore, the documentary explores Sulzer’s collaboration with Worn Again, which aims to extract cellulose and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) fibres from fabrics and textiles to deliver high quality recycled PET and cellulose. The technology has received great interest from the textiles industry, as it minimizes its environmental impact.
