The future of buildings
Topics like the Circular Economy, digitalization and the renovation wave will change the future of the construction industry. Since 2020, we’ve been conducting workshops with over 500 industry professionals and graduates worldwide to envision the future of buildings together. Discover our key results and discuss the possible impact of our learnings for the PU industry in the next 10 years.
Translucent foam: The new (day)light
Translucent Desmodur® clear offers a material breakthrough in diffuse lighting effects for rigid PU foams. These innovative, colorfast and UV stable aliphatic foam materials unlock a wide range of design possibilities thanks to diffuse lighting with natural daylight or even artificial light effects, all without sacrificing any of the traditional advantages of PU foams.
Chemical recycling of flexible foams
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 PU foam from used mattresses. This solution enables the recovery of both the polyol and the toluene diamine. The result? High-quality raw materials for the production of new polyurethane foams.
The Recipe Finder for flexible foam
Digitalization is expected to have a revolutionary impact on our industry in the coming years. Especially in the area of product development, it may contribute to making our processes more efficient and sustainable. Let us show you how with the Recipe Finder by Covestro!
New world, new journeys, new possibilities
A near-global lockdown deaccelerated the world’s interconnected economies. During this time, wildlife flourished, and emissions went down. The impact for people and commerce was equally seismic: businesses took their entire brand experience online, accelerating the shift towards hybrid communications. How will the new landscape impact customer touchpoints and experiences in 2022 and beyond?
