3A announces the first carbon-neutral core material

The greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions captured by 3A Composites balsa plantations are significantly higher than the GHG emissions caused by the balsa core material production. As a result, Baltek® SBC is the first carbon-neutral core material in the world.

The external calculations conducted by SCX – Bolsa de Clima de Santiago, Chile, and Factor CO2, Ecuador, have confirmed Baltek SBC reaches superior Greenhouse Gas Emissions Balance without the use of external offsetting.

3A Composites Core Materials manages several thousand ha of FSC-certified balsa plantations in Papua New Guinea (FSC-C125018) and Ecuador (FSC-C019065) to produce its structural core material Baltek SBC.

Eric Gauthier, CEO of 3A Composites Core Materials said:

“Thanks to Baltek SBC, we support the carbon neutrality initiatives in the wind, marine, transportation, and many other industries, as well as to accomplish our commitment to cut our carbon footprint significantly by 2020. As a company, we strive to generate new products that help industries become greener.”

By utilizing its plantations and state-of-the-art production facilities, 3A Composites is in a unique position to offer a genuinely renewable core material with a clear positive impact on the climate. 3A Composites own plantations, and not balsa as a renewable product, fosters Baltek SBC’s carbon neutrality.
