Pioneering more sustainable toluene diisocyanate (TDI) via mass balance
The use of mass-balanced TDI in your application keeps quality high and greenhouse gas emissions low.
Striving toward climate-neutral with mass-balanced TDI
Sinomax: a pioneering partner for more sustainability
We have signed our first commercial supply contract with Sinomax, a global manufacturer and distributor of polyurethane comfort products based in China. Both companies share a clear commitment toward the circular economy, and Sinomax wants to be the first customer to use the mass balanced TDI to reduce its CO2 emissions. The mass-balanced TDI required for this is supplied by our Shanghai site. Thanks to the global presence of our Shanghai site, the company can supply larger amounts of renewable-attributed TDI.
Introducing ‘CQ’ – our branding to underline our commitment to circularity
To reflect our commitment to circularity, and to make it even clearer how our products support our circular vision as well as your path towards sustainability, we are introducing a branding, ‘CQ,’ for our products that drive circularity. The branding suffix ‘CQ’ stands for circular intelligence. Together, C and Q underline how essential innovative solutions can drive circularity forward. The range of solutions carrying CQ will constantly grow. One of the first products available, with a significantly reduced carbon footprint, are Desmodur® CQ T80 and Desmodur® CQ T65.
"With our shift to mass-balanced products, we are helping customers in various industries achieve their climate targets and drive the transition to a circular economy. At the same time, we are strengthening the use of alternative raw materials and reducing CO₂emissions along various value chains."
