Washington, DC – The Center for the Polyurethanes Industry has launched an online brochure outlining the ways that polyurethane contributes to global sustainability goals.
The CPI stresses the long lifetimes of many PU products. It said: 'most polyurethane products and product components are durable and long-lasting – often lasting for the life of the product... rigid polyurethane used to insulate refrigerators last the lifetime of the refrigerator. Flexible polyurethane in automotive seating lasts the life of the car.'
The brochure explains how the PU industry benefits society and the world under four headings: a safe, adequate food supply; longer, healthier lives; modern energy & a healthy climate; and, sustainable production and consumption.
