New Eco-Profiles study of MDI / TDI and Polyols

ISOPA has just concluded and published the update of the eco-profiles of Methylenediphenyl diisocyanate (MDI), Toluene Diisocyanate (TDI) and Short- and Long Chain Polyether Polyols.

The study was carried out by PE INTERNATIONAL AG and peer reviewed by DEKRA Industrial GmbH in accordance with the  PlasticsEurope’s Eco-profiles and Environmental Declarations – LCI Methodology and PCR for Uncompounded Polymer Resins and Reactive Polymer Precursors (PCR version 2.0, April 2011), which is in conformity with the  International Standards ISO 14040, 14044 and 14025.

Thanks to the active participation and engagement of ISOPA member companies, the results cover 90% of all European producers for  each of the substances  and therefore provides a very good representativeness of the European production in 2010. All these reports and data sets can be  downloaded from the PlasticsEurope website.
