Polymers produced using our CO2-to-polymer catalyst technologies have enhanced polymer properties.
Polyurethanes made with polycarbonate polyols can be more tolerant to chemicals (e.g. acids, oils), UV radiation and abrasion, making them more durable and weather resistant.
Elastic polycarbonate films can be used for food packaging because they have good barrier properties to gases and excellent resistance to oils and grease.
The current manufacture of polycarbonate polyols and polycarbonates (without CO2 technology) is very expensive, so they are only used for high-performance, niche applications.
With Econic catalysts, the cost of polycarbonate manufacture will be optimised, enabling the polymers to be produced on a cost effective basis.
