Dow polyurethanes offers Renuva

February 19, 2008

Dow Polyurethanes introduced Renuva renewable resource technology, a proprietary process that helps polyurethane manufacturers make products that are performance-based and reduce the impact on the environment. Renuva technology is used to produce bio-based polyols that allow high renewable content in the finished product with performance that rivals that of petroleum-based polyols. Renuva technology uses up to 60% fewer fossil fuel resources than conventional polyol technologies and is greenhouse gas neutral, according to the company.
