CARBONIPUS: Polyurethanes without isocyanates of renewable origin

Carbonipus

PROBLEM/OPPORTUNITY

Polyurethanes are currently manufactured from polyols and isocyanates of petrochemical origin. Isocyanates are highly toxic compounds that can react with water present in air humidity, creating production issues. This has generated market interest in developing polyurethanes that are not based on such a compound.

Potential Market

  • Polycarbonates and polyurethanes are two of the most widely used polymers in a multitude of applications, with global markets of €10B and €45B, respectively.
