EcoNex™ Composite Technology - 590x415

Sustainability delivered,
in so many ways

Lighter. Stronger. More Efficient.

Our patent-pending EcoNexTM Technology is the next generation molded structural composite. The result: a more sustainable transportation, logistics and distribution industry, while dramatically lowering overall operating costs.

Less fuel is required when using EcoNex Technology in products that transport temperature-sensitive freight. With fewer greenhouse gas emissions, the carbon footprint is reduced, enabling achievement of ambitious sustainability objectives.

Panels with EcoNex Technology are lighter in weight, stronger in construction, and more thermally efficient, resulting in increased asset and residual values. And, they have a longer life than panels built with conventional technology. 

DID YOU KNOW?   Wabash's 53-acre campus in Little Falls, MN is exclusively dedicated to EcoNex production.

Advanced Materials that Reduce the Carbon Footprint

Wabash's EcoNex Technology is an advanced, sustainable approach to addressing equipment challenges that refrigerated carriers have been facing for years: thermal efficiency, strength, weight and longer asset life. EcoNex is made with high-efficiency foam core, encapsulated in a polymer fiber-reinforced shell and protective gel coat. Not only does this unique chemistry offer a solution that can deliver new levels of efficiency and higher return on investment, EcoNex is manufactured under Wabash's conscious effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and dependency on non-renewable energy.

Why EcoNex?

  • Boosts thermal performance
  • Structural strength eliminates need for metal or wood
  • Supports customers' sustainability objectives
  • Gel coat protects against water intrusion and weight gain
  • Slower foam degradation upholds thermal properties
  • Extended product life
  • 100% EcoNex-dedicated facilities and R&D resources
  • Made in the U.S.A.
