  • Project Description

    Turning industrial waste gases (mixed CO/CO2 steams) into intermediates for polyurethane plastics for rigid foams/building insulation and coatings. The general objective of the Carbon4PUR project is to develop and demonstrate (TRL4-6) a new flexible technology for the production of value-added chemicals, polyester polyols, of carbon derived from steel mill gas.
