      On the road to global electrification of transport, it is clear that batteries play a central role. But it is packaging that allows batteries to deliver their value: safe, cost-efficient, versatile and dependable energy to power electric vehicles. At Covestro, we understand that although packaging is needed your goal is minimize whatever does not add to energy density. This is why we develop polycarbonate-based materials, with proven toughness and versatility, to meet the most demanding battery packaging requirements as efficiently as possible.
