BIOSUCCINIUM® sustainable succinic acid is a 100% bio-based raw material that enables production of polyester polyol (PESP) and polyurethane (PU) products with substantially lower environmental footprint.
BIOSUCCINIUM® offers an alternative to conventional fossil-based chemicals such as adipic acid for the polyester polyol and polyurethanes industry.
To date, very limited practical work has been published to evaluate the effect of succinic acid in polyester polyols and polyurethanes. Therefore, experiments have been conducted that can give direction to the development of BIOSUCCINIUM® enabling sustainable (thermoplastic) polyurethanes. No attempt has been made to optimize any of the polyols or polyurethanes for specific applications or uses.
