BENEFITS

Plastic fuel tanks and systems are designed to offer environment-friendly; cost-effective; light-weight; and safe solutions to the Automotive Industry

ENVIROMENT-FRIENDLY

Recyclability has also been extensively demonstrated and HDPE derived from End-of-Life tanks is mostly recycled today in second life applications. 

LIGHT WEIGHT

Plastic tank system also serves the dual purpose of decreasing the vehicle’s overall weight, as an average plastic tank weighs one-third less than an average steel tank.

LOW EMISSIONS

Fuel Systems industry developed innovative SCR system solutions, allowing to store and distribute on-board urea-water solutions, which has been recognized as the best technique to abate engine NOemissions.
