Renewable

Generating ideas and solutions

Harnessing the power of both the wind and the sun requires products that stand up to the power, strength and awe of Mother Nature. It takes both a passion for alternatives and tenacity to find ways to capture and convert the suns rays and the North wind (as well as the East, West and South winds) into electricty to power homes, schools, hospitals and offices. As the world shifts to find reliable and renewable sources of energy, Ashland too adjusts its teams to respond to the changing needs and to refine and continuously improve solutions to make the world better and brighter.

When oil prices are up, so is the demand for renewable energy and, given the ever-increasing concern for the health of the planet on which we live, the need for alternative forms of energy continues to grow.  As a leading specialty ingredient manfacturer, Ashland offers a variety of solutions to the renewable energy industry.  Ashland binders offer several high-quality products that offer excellent solubility in numerous solvent systems.

Wind turbine blades are exposed to all types of weather conditions and with more windmills, being placed in the ocean, the damaging effects of salt, water and sun are intensified.  Ashland offers several different types of resins for the manufacture of wind turbine blades.  Resins resist the corrosion and deterioration that often occurs from exposure to water and salt.  Gelcoats from Ashland provide another layer of protection, thus providing a multi-layer solution for generating wind energy.
