Solar and wind energy depend on strong, durable materials. U.S. Borax products help to enable these technologies—and we strive to make our own operations sustainable, too.
- In solar thermal heating applications, borosilicate glass helps to focus and capture solar energy.
- Textile fiberglass made with borates is important in the creation of wind turbines, and borates are a part of the high-power magnets that are used in turbine generator systems.
- Aside from providing materials used in sustainable energy production, we make environmental protection and safety key aspects of our own operations. Since 2001, our Sustainable Development program has been a foundation of our commitment.
- Our Product Stewardship and Health, Safety, Environment (HSE) teams are dedicated to the responsible production and safe use of U.S. Borax products.
