Emery Oleochemicals Establishes New Eco-friendly Polyols Business Unit

Published September 26, 2013
Emery Oleochemicals, a leading natural-based chemicals producer, has established a new business unit -- Eco-Friendly Polyols (EP) in recognition of the opportunities in the global polyol industry.

The EP business offers innovative, sustainable polyol solutions for use in the manufacturing of flexible and rigid polyurethane foam commonly found in transportation, construction, packaging, furniture and bedding, and many CASE (coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers) applications. Its high-performance solutions include the widely recognized EMEROX Renewable Polyols and InfiGreen Recycle Polyols.

The EMEROX Renewable Polyols are made from renewable resources and deliver on both performance and cost, while the InfiGreen Recycle Polyols are made from recycled polyurethane scrap foam and can function as a direct replacement for petroleum based polyols. InfiGreen Recycle Polyols also provide enhanced value and improved sustainability through the recycling of scrap foam. The award-winning InfiGreen Technology was recently acquired by Emery Oleochemicals and fits in well with the firm's growth and sustainability goals.

"Understanding the high growth potential this segment offers, the timely launch of our Eco-Friendly Polyols business will enable us better respond to the growing demand and increasing push for environmentally-friendly polyol products. We are actively investing in upgrading and expanding our Cincinnati production facilities, while enhancing our research and development capabilities. The acquisition of the InfiGreen polyol technology further reinforces our commitment to being a one-stop chemical solutions provider for our customers,"said group CEO of Emery Oleochemicals,  Kongkrapan Intarajang.

The business expansion into Eco-Friendly Polyols is supported by Emery Oleochemicals' $50 million Cincinnati facility expansion announced in October 2012. Combining the firm's proprietary ozonolysis technology and Infigreen Polyol glycolysis technology, enables the seamless integration of the manufacturing of Eco-Friendly Polyols into Emery Oleochemicals' overall business strategy.

Additionally, the acquisition of the InfiGreen technology will position Emery Oleochemicals as the first specialty chemicals company to offer a unique line of polyols based on both renewable and recycled raw materials.
