Low-GWP Alternative for Small Rigid PU Foam Enterprises

United Nations Environment Programme ; World Bank (2014)

To improve technical capacity in relation to adoption of cyclopentane technology of a large number of small foam producers, the project was, therefore, designed to assist a system house for which small foam enterprises rely on for their supply of raw materials and technical advice, to develop polyol, one of the major raw materials for foam production, pre-blended with cyclopentane, instead of HCFC-141b. This approach also enhances market penetration of this new product by using the existing market network.
