The assessment carried out by PRe Sustainability showed that for every tonne of carbon dioxide used to produce the polyols, three tonnes less were generated. This is primarily a result of the significant reduction in the requirement for energy intensive traditional raw materials.
'With COP26 approaching, it is appropriate to showcase how to create sustainable value from captured carbon emissions,’ said CEO Keith Wiggins. ‘This independent lifecycle assessment demonstrates that [this] technology will grow in importance, contributing strongly to the decarbonisation agenda. Manufacturers are able to bring their customers more sustainable higher-performing more cost-effective products today using CO2.'
