Bio-based Polyester Polyols
Biosuccinium® can be used to replace petrochemical-based adipic acid in the production of polyester polyols for polyurethanes (PU).
Polyurethanes are used in a wide variety of applications such as adhesives for hot melt applications, coatings, sealants, (thermoplastic) elastomers for artificial leather applications and shoe soles as well as flexible and rigid foams. This provides many market opportunities in a diverse range of industries like footwear, automotive, construction, furniture, insulation, architecture and bedding.
By replacing 1kg of petrochemical adipic acid with Biosuccinium®, manufacturers can reduce their carbon footprint by over 8kg of CO2. These renewable polyurethanes have already been well received in the industry.
