- Cost effectiveness: added value is created by leveraging superior plastic material capability and manufacturing flexibility. Using plastics to produce fuel tanks is more cost-effective considering the complexity of its shape, its functional requirements (e.g. mechanical and chemical resistance) and the quantity of material to be used. Plastics offer in one single material a combination of great design flexibility, impact and corrosion resistance and low production costs (plastics can be processed at temperatures lower than steel or glass).
Since their introduction for Fuel Systems manufacturing application, Plastics have widely demonstrated superior performances over other competing technologies.

As a global player in producing plastic parts for the automotive industry, INERGY is a member of Plasfuelsys, an European association of plastic fuel tanks producers. Developers and producers with about 40 plants in Europe and more than 10 000 employees are organized here. Plasfuelsys is a panel for professionals from all participating fields of knowledge, but this association also informs government and citizens about the benefits of modern plastic fuel tank systems. Plasfuelsys is part of the EUPC (European Plastics Converters) based in Brussels, Belgium.
