Pilot scale demonstration of novel CO2 co-polymerisation catalysts in the PU polyol market

From 2016-07-01 to 2018-06-30, closed project | CO2Catalyst Website

Project details

Total cost:

EUR 3 558 238,75

EU contribution:

EUR 2 490 767

Coordinated in:

United Kingdom

Objective

Deliverables

  • Datasheets on 1-3 polyols suitable for 1-4 PU applications.

    Produce, characterise and tailor polyols for common generic PU applications Polyols will be produced and relevant properties for downstream PU formulation will be measured. Desirable characteristics of polyols for selected applications are understood and some tailoring of the polyols is likely required to approximate typical incumbent polyols used in these applications. Blends with commercial polyols may be required to obtain sufficiently useable characteristics.
