Where can the new CO2 polyols be used? How can they be used to create marketable products that meet all standards? These teams deal with questions such as these.
cardyon® is not only something for polyurethanes. The CAS segment is also tinkering with possible applications. For example, we may soon find cardyon® in sports shoes.
