Lade GmbH, a German startup dedicated to e-mobility and energy management, has selected Ineos Styrolution’s sustainable Luran S Eco material for its line of charging wallboxes. Founded three years ago, Lade GmbH offers a broad portfolio of scalable e-mobility charging products for car park operators, companies, retail outlets, buildings, and municipalities.

Recently recognized with the German Design Award Special 2023, the company’s wallboxes will be based on Ineos Styrolution’s Luran S Eco 757G B40, a grade with 40% bio-attributed material. Luran S, an acrylonitrile styrene acrylate (ASA) polymer, features high surface quality, impact strength, color fastness, and chemical resistance. The product is suited for outdoor use and designed to withstand exposure to UV irradiation and heat. Processing is facilitated by the material's flowability.

Luran S Eco is made using renewable feedstock based on a mass balance process certified by ISCC Plus. Luran S Eco is currently available with as much as 50% of renewable content. This results in up to a 58% carbon-footprint reduction compared with fossil-based Luran S.

Lade GmbH’s wallbox — LADEmini — is a compact, scalable, and comprehensive AC charging system. It provides tailored charging solutions for various needs, from single-family homes to company fleets. LADEmini also offers future-proof features like load balancing, smart and sustainable charging, and a software back end.

Dennis Schulmeyer, founder and CEO of Lade GmbH, said: “Ineos Styrolution’s line of Eco products goes hand in hand with our own vision. Luran S enables our sustainable application approach and offers a superior aesthetic at the same time.”

Stefan Roettel, key account manager at Ineos Styrolution, added: “We are proud to be working with a visionary company like Lade GmbH. I am particularly excited about the entrepreneurial spirit that drives the organization and its commitment to furthering society’s transformation to e-mobility.”
