US foam producers show great interest in H&S recycling technology

According to H&S, the US PU foam processors showed great interest in its in-house-developed recycling technology for converting rigid and flexible PU foam into polyol. In particular, the US flexible foam manufacturers were impressed by the beneficial opportunities which are now possible with H&S recycling technology and proposed to start cooperation with the company for evaluating the possibilities of converting their flexible foam residues back into polyol. H&S said it will manufacture polyols for a couple of its potential customers from their original foam waste at its pilot plant in Berlin to provide them with an opportunity for industrial testing. The resulting polyol can substitute up to 25 % of virgin polyol and will allow the foaming industry to establish an economical and sustainable manufacturing process, says the company. H&S says its unique turnkey solutions for recycling projects are offering an ideal combination of recycling plant equipment and chemical know-how, consisting of formulations, specifications of the required raw materials, and process descriptions.
