Taylor made production solutions

•In November 2022, AnVa Polytech's biggest project to date was launched. We were nominated for a new electric hybrid application in the automotive segment.

•The product is, in terms of size, the largest product that we have manufactured/manufacture and we have built two equivalent production cells to operate the production volumes.

•For the production cells we have invested in two new 600-ton injection molding machines with two automation robots for each cell, all the automation setup has been built by AnVa.

•The product is manufactured with AnVa's Climarub rubber using recycled carbon black saving approx. 25 tons of CO2 annually.

•Since the beginning of 2024, both production cells are producing at full speed with weekly deliveries.
•This is a great accomplishment for AnVa and shows the competence and commitment of our employees.

During 2022 our employees completed more than 11 improvements per person, which is a new AnVa record

Improvment of the year reduced internal transportation with 26 km’s for a certain product, and made it possible for us to reduce our annual consumption of electricity by 46 MWh. Total investment cost for this improvment: 0 SEK.

new coworker - lena bui

Meet Lena Bui, who has been working as a material developer at our lab in Sunne for about a month.

After completing internal and external training, she will assume substantial responsibility for developing tailor-made and eco-friendly polymeric materials.

Lena is a qualified biomedical scientist, a background that is a good basis for further training in laboratory activities and material development.

Welcome to AnVa Polytech, Lena!


AnVa Polytech conducts constant development work of its entire business, where energy use and work with sustainability issues are part of a larger whole. On the Swedish Energy Agency's website, you can read more about what we planned to achieve in 2017.

We measure efficiency as a result of the factory's total energy consumption divided by kg of rubber compound produced and since 2017, when the article was written, the factory has become 38% more energy efficient.

In 2021, we achieved an energy efficiency of 11%. Resource optimization is created year after year without major initiatives. Instead, results arise in the work of small continuous improvements throughout the organization. There is still a lot to do and we look forward to making new progress in energy efficiency in 2022.

As a part of strengthening its competitiveness, AnVa Polytech in Sunne has worked to open up another production unit. The unit is located in Birzai, Lithuania, and the business constitutes a complete production for forming and post-production of rubber components. The business is in a start-up phase and the first deliveries from the factory directly to the end consumer was sent in 2020. In 2021, the ambition is to refine products to a value of SEK 50 million and the growth will be 10-30% per year in the coming years.

“The business development takes a great leap when verified standards can be combined with new ones that are implemented in parallel. The new business will be a benchmark for the other businesses,” says Claes Källqvist, business developer at AnVa Polytech, who has had a leading role in the establishment of the production unit.

A key to AnVa Polytech’s success is the solid competence in production technology, material development, and R&D. This core will continue to be strengthened in Sunne and provide support for both production locations. The new business currently employs 30 people and includes six forming machines.

Climarub - high performance with less CO2 emissions

Climarub is our new rubber material developed to reduce the environmental impact. It can replace traditional EPDM rubber resulting in considerably lower CO2 emission.
Technically, Climarub performs just as well as traditional EPDM rubber. And we will of course ensure that your specific technical and functional requirements are met when defining your recipe.
We have an ambition to continuously strive to be a more sustainable company. Climarub is yet another step in this direction.
Together, we can reach your climate targets.

Climarub 0.7

Using Climarub 0.7 you will decrease the CO2 emissions by 0,7 kg per produced kg of rubber product. This decrease is achieved by using an ingredient which is made from recycled worn out tires instead of new fossil material.

Climarrub 1.3

Climarub 1.3 reduces the environmental impact yet another step. Exchanging a traditional EPDM rubber for Climarub 1.3 will reduce the CO2 emissions by 1,3 kg per produced kg of rubber product.
In Climarub 1.3 we have added biological raw material to the mix in addition to the recycled worn-out tires.

SES återvunna kimrök sänker utsläppen med 79-84%

Den återvunna kimrök som AnVa Polytech använder visar sig ha en ännu bättre miljöpåverkan än tidigare mätningar visat.

I en ny livscykelanalys, LCA, från IVL Svenska Miljöinstitutet, visar det sig att den återvunna kimröken leder till 79-84 procent lägre CO2-utsläpp jämfört med de 60% man trott tidigare.
(jämfört med produktion av jungrulig kimrök)

AnVa Polytech använder framgångsrikt återvunnen kimrök från Scandinavian Enviro Systems till bland annat Volvo Cars pluggsortiment.
