Press Kit: Covestro Media Talk on "CO₂ as an alternative raw material"
- Using the waste gas CO₂ as a raw material for valuable products – thanks to an innovative technology from Covestro and partners, this long-standing dream has become reality. But chemists are not the only ones who are excited about this: Covestro offers precursors for polyurethanes under the name cardyon® that can be used in an increasing number of applications and industries. The latest achievement is the possibility of also utilizing the CO₂-containing raw materials for rigid foams, which are used to produce efficient insulating materials.
On this page you will find links to the presentation, press releases, overview texts, photos, infographics and videos of the Covestro Media Talk "Intelligent use of CO₂ – Waste Gas as a Valuable Raw Material" on March 3, 2021.
