JEC World 2022
Our research representative attended JEC World 2022. JEC World is the global trade show for composite materials and their applications. Held in Paris, it is the industry’s leading event, hosting all the major players in a spirit of innovation, business and networking. The trade show is the “place to be” for composites with hundreds of product launches, awards ceremonies, startup competition, conferences, live demonstrations, innovation planets and networking opportunities.
He attended the event and there were several companies to make him impressive. One of them is Solvay and the company tries to realize urban air mobility through their products.
Solvay is a science company whose technologies bring benefits to many aspects of daily life. Its purpose is “we bond people, ideas and elements to reinvent progress”. This purpose is a call to go beyond, to reinvent future forms of progress and create sustainable shared value for all through the power of science. In a world facing an ever-growing population and quest for resources, they aim to be the driving force triggering the next breakthroughs to enable humanity to advance while protecting the planet we all share.
The company bonds with customers and partners to address today and tomorrow’s megatrends. As a global leader in Materials, Chemicals and Solutions, Solvay brings advancements in planes, cars, batteries, smart and medical devices, water and air treatment, to solve critical industrial, social and environmental challenges. We can count on their innovative solutions to contribute to safer, cleaner and more sustainable future.
In addition, the idea of progress has been at the heart of their company since the very earliest days. It is over one hundred and fifty years ago, and the idea has driven them to create many of their defining achievements.
Progress is their integral force triggered by bonding. Such fundamental ideas have always been purposely guiding Solvay’s humanistic and scientific spirit. This provided the foundation on which Ernest Solvay initiated his unique Solvay conferences contributing to the birth of modern physics by bringing together the brightest minds of all time.
Furthermore, other disciplines made spectacular progress thanks to his scientific institutes. In chemistry, bonding is what continuously happens when elements connect into molecules, shaping the world we experience every day. Ultimately, people can bond with other people’s ideas to share common goals and their collective energy can change the future.
Urban Air Mobility
Urban air mobility is one of the hottest topics relating mobility. This is because congestion is one of the big problems in the cities. In fact, many people have taken more time between their home and workplace due to congestion. Therefore, if we can make use of urban air mobility, the sky is not the limit. It makes us move from one place to another easier, more freely and conveniently. The Japanese multinational manufacturer, Honda, also has entered this area.
However, it is still the stage of development. We need materials that are cheaper, lighter, safer and more eco-friendly. Solvay offers them and collaborates with Vertical Aerospace to realize urban air mobility. This collaboration makes our research representative impressive. So, we will follow their collaboration and future developments from now on.
