Covestro  “will get there” with CO2 elastomers

London – Covestro’s progress in commercialising polyurethane foam materials employing carbon dioxides (CO2) as a feedstock will be replicated in the field of thermoplastics polyurethane (TPU) elastomers, according to CEO Patrick Thomas.

The Leverkusen, Germany-based company has already established a four kilotonne-per-annum (ktpa) plant for the manufacture of the CO2-based polyol feedstock and envisages a 100ktpa facility in the next five years.

Among Covestro’s other target applications for CO2 are TPU elastomers – block copolymers comprising alternating sequences of hard and soft segments formed by reacting diisocyanates…
