Dormagen, Germany — The first tanker of Covestro's Cardyon carbon dioxide-containing polyol left the firm's plant here on Tuesday 13 December 2016.
The plant was inaugurated in summer 2016 and "is running smoothly. The first shipment of our new flexible foam component made with CO2 is on the way to the customer," said project manager Kirsten Malsch.
Covestro said its cardyon polyols contain approximately 20% CO2 and Covestro said that it's working to integrate more CO2 into its products.
The company confirmed that it is working to see if rigid polyols can be made using similar technology.
