Continuous product development and stringent quality standards, enables us to provide the polyurethane industry with high-performance, unique and customized solutions that can be integrated economically into products and processes with sustainability needs.

As one of the few manufacturers offering both ‘Recycle and Renewable’ solutions, our Eco-Friendly Polyols business unit supports customers in the manufacture of flexible and rigid foam for transportation, construction, packaging, furniture, bedding and appliances through our EMEROX® Renewable Polyols and InfiGreen® Recycle Content Polyols. Our approach to Recycling through science® is made further possible by combining Emery Oleochemicals’ proprietary ozonolysis technology and Infigreen’s Polyol glycolysis technology.

The EMEROX® Renewable Polyols, made from renewable resources, delivers on both performance and cost, while the InfiGreen® Recycle Content Polyols are made from recycled polyurethane scrap foam and can function as a direct replacement for petroleum-based polyols. InfiGreen® Polyols with recycle content also provide enhanced value and improved sustainability through the recycling of scrap foam.

Flexible Foam

EMEROX® and InfiGreen® polyols find application in high resiliency flexible polyurethane foam for automotive seating, furniture, bedding, packaging, and open cell foams for sound insulation. The unique composition and molecular weight distribution make these polyols well suited for use in visco-elastic memory foams. The ability to utilise post production and post-consumer scrap foam, along with renewable raw materials, make these polyols unique solutions for flexible foam applications. The EMEROX® and InfiGreen® polyols provide an unmatched combination of performance, value, and sustainability in the production of flexible polyurethane foams.

In addition, Emery Oleochemicals can offer closed-loop recycling services to manufacturers of flexible polyurethane foams, where the production scrap can be used to produce InfiGreen® polyols custom tailored for reuse in the flexible urethane products. This provides the opportunity to recycle scrap polyurethane waste that otherwise may have been destined for the landfill.

EMEROX® Polyol 14001, 14050, 14055 InfiGreen® Polyol 60, 100, 300

Rigid Foam

EMEROX® and InfiGreen® polyols are well suited for use in wall and roof spray foam insulation, piping insulation, concrete repairs, and soil stabilization. In addition, InfiGreen® polyols are well suited for polyisocyanurate foams. InfiGreen® recycle content polyols’ high aromatic content impart good resistance to burning, while the unique molecular weight distribution impart excellent mechanical properties to rigid polyurethane foams. The self-catalytic properties have the potential to reduce catalyst loading and need for specialty polyols. EMEROX® polyols offer a unique combination of high functionality and low viscosity. EMEROX® and InfiGreen® polyols have good compatibility with aromatic polyester polyols and polyether polyols.

In addition, Emery Oleochemicals can offer closed-loop recycling services to manufacturers of rigid polyurethane and isocyanurate foams, where the production scrap can be used to produce InfiGreen® polyols custom tailored for reuse in the rigid and polyisocyanurate urethane products. This provides the opportunity to recycle scrap polyurethane waste that otherwise would be destined for the landfill.
