CO2 Based Products – From Dream to Reality


The goal of Dream Products is to evaluate additional alternative applications of CO2 based polyether/PUR polymers especially for the textile industry segment as textile fibers, for rubber and inorganic applications as catalysts and ion exchange systems. This extension of CO2 application portfolio will significantly enlarge the amount of CO2 fixed in value products. Within Dream Products it is planned to use the already well-established pilot scale synthesis and production process of CO2 based CO2-PET/PUR polymers, thus providing an additional contribution to sustainability, climate protection and higher value creation (green products on the market).
