Chemical recycling of flexible foams: Closing the loop for polyurethane mattresses
Driven by our Circular Economy goals and our commitment towards a more sustainable future, we have developed an innovative process for the chemical recycling of polyurethane (PU) foam from used mattresses. Unlike other chemical recycling approaches, our patented solution enables the recovery of the two main components used in a flexible foam application: the polyol and a toluene diamine – the precursor of the isocyanate. The result? High quality raw materials for the production of new polyurethane foams.
