Title

Cross-linkable CO2-Polyether Polyols

Concept

With CroCO2PETs, we strive to extend the product portfolio of polymers, which contain covalently bound CO2. In this R&D&I-project, we carefully monitor technical feasibility, economic viability and carbon footprint of our research products in order to stay on the way towards marketable sustainable products. The CO2-polyols we work at have the potential to replace current commodities, so that the emission of up to several million tons of greenhouse gases is potentially avoided.
