Wanhua Chemical Progresses on Polyurethane Recycling Technologies as a Leap Toward Circular Economy
Therigid polyurethane (PU) foam recyclingpilot plantat Wanhua Chemicalkicked off in July, which is a milestone for its efforts to implement PU recycling and reuse.
The waste PU material is used to produce high-compatible repolyol through chemical processes, which can be directly used for foaming, same as the origin polyol. The process significantly reduces carbon emissions with no compromise on product properties and performance. It opens a new channel for industries like refrigeration, mattress or automobile dismantling to deal with the waste PU foam and empower the value chain both in economic and environmental aspects. Besides,Wanhua Chemical has produced qualifiedrepolyolin the laboratory using soft PU foam recycling technology and itspilot production can start next year.
In the future, Wanhua Chemical will continue to develop PU recycling solution and head to circular economy.
