Cardyon®: A polyol that makes environmental sense
Cardyon® is a breakthrough innovation which enables manufacturers to create flexible polyurethane foams with a sustainable polyol made with up to 20% carbon dioxide. This both reduces an organization's carbon footprint and raises its ecological profile.
Many organizations are looking for energy-efficient ways to capture and use CO₂ in raw materials. Covestro found one, a catalyst that makes low-energy reactions possible and now includes up to 20% CO₂ in its cardyon® polyol. The process brings CO₂ back into the value chain while saving up to 20% crude oil, an innovation that enables soft foam manufacturers to broaden their raw material base beyond oil, raise their environmental profile and support the circular economy through sustainable solutions. Besides use in mattresses, cardyon® has been expanded for uptake in car interiors and sports flooring. Also, thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPU) solutions are available for use in shoes, industrial tubing and textile fibers which are on the verge of market maturity.
