Recticel to Commercialize CO2 Polyol
Covestro recently dedicated its new EUR 15m “Dream Production” facility for the polyether polycarbonate polyols (PPPs) at Dormagen / Germany. Feedstock is sourced from a neighbouring manufacturing plant – see Plasteurope.com of 21.06.2016.
Recticel has supported the development of the polyol from the beginning and worked with the former Bayer MaterialScience during the extensive application testing phase, said Olivier Chapelle, CEO of the Belgian foam specialist. Jean-Pierre De Kesel, the company’s chief sustainable innovation officer, said carbon footprint analysis has helped the company to prioritise actions, especially in the use of raw materials and at the end-of-life stage of its products. “We are firmly committed to sustainable innovation in the coming years with the help of partners such as Covestro who push existing boundaries,” he added.
