Collaboration between Recticel and Covestro

January 13 2020

Recticel and Covestro are working closely together in developing breakthrough solutions to make mattresses more sustainable and ready them for a circular economy. This includes the research of raw material technologies – from mattress production to end-of-life and beyond. At imm cologne 2020 furniture fair, Schlaraffia/ Recticel Schlafkomfort GmbH will show such innovative and sustainable solutions at booths nos. A010 and A011 in hall 5.2.

“Polyurethane mattresses are widely used for a long time and valued for their comfort,” says Boudewijn Dezutter, Commercial Director at Recticel. “Now it is time to further increase the sustainable value of the material at each stage of the lifecycle.” “The project is part of a long-term program with which Covestro is strongly oriented towards a circular economy,” states Dr. Berit Stange, Circular Economy Manager in the Polyurethanes segment at Covestro. “In particular, we focus on using raw materials from sustainable sources, such as waste, plants and CO2.”

The greatest potential for closing cycles in the plastics industry lies in the recycling of post-consumer waste. This in particular applies to the recycling of thermoset materials like polyurethanes. Mass products such as mattresses are a main focus here. Covestro wants to contribute to this by developing chemical recycling technologies.
