Recticel said it will use the innovative Covestro developed CO2 based cardyon polyol to manufacture flexible foams and more specifically for furniture and mattresses.

Covestro has succeeded in developing a new type of polyol based on CO2, which has one thing in common with oil. It contains the carbon element, a central building block for the chemical industry.

The new cardyon polyol contains about 20 per cent CO2 by weight and as such saves finite natural resources and contributes to mitigating global warming by significantly reducing a product's carbon footprint.

“I am proud that Recticel and Covestro are partners on this exciting journey towards creating more sustainable buildings blocks for our chemistry,” Recticel CEO Olivier Chapelle said.

The CO2 that Covestro uses to manufacture the new cardyon polyol is sourced from a nearby production plant and by capturing CO2 and transforming it in a useful raw material, its release into the atmosphere is avoided.

Chief sustainable innovation officer Jean-Pierre De Kesel said, “We are firmly committed to sustainable innovation in the coming years with the help of partners such as Covestro who push existing boundaries.” (AR)
