- Emissions from passenger cars account for around half of all CO2 emissions in the transport sector
- For steel cars the use of structural adhesives contributes to reduce the weight of a car by at least 15 %. The energy consumption for the production and for the use phase is reduced by more than 15 GJ (equivalent to more than 300 litres of fuel)
- A comparison of joining technologies demonstrates that adhesive bonding has the lowest Global Warming Potential compared to welding and clinching technologies
