Munich, Germany – Huntsman’s polyurethanes division won a Supplier Innovation Award from BMW Group for an emissions-reducing PU seating foam the auto maker uses in its vehicles.
According to Huntsman, its chemistry enabled BMW to reduce total emissions from its seating foams by a factor of ten – “without compromising comfort or quality.”
Tony Hankins, president of Huntsman's Polyurethanes division, accepted the award at a ceremony on 29 September at the BMW Welt in Munich.
"BMW is well known for its exacting performance standards and Huntsman has been a long-term technology partner to the business, assisting in its drive for improved safety, performance, comfort and sustainability," Hankins said.
"We are incredibly proud of this award and the difference that our technology will make to BMW customers worldwide."
