Valuable material for wind power

China has been pushing forward the wind power as the country targets to increase non-fossil energy to achieve its environmental goals. With an installed power capacity at 91,424MW, China is leading as the largest wind energy provider worldwide.

Engineers often choose Levapren from LANXESS, particularly when it comes to large wind turbines, because this halogen-free ethylene-vinyl acetate synthetic rubber (EVM) helps to significantly reduce the risk of fire in the vicinity of the generators and to protect considerable investments in the event of fire.
