Turning CO2 waste into a benefit for business and our planet

Econic Technologies offers ground-breaking technology to existing plastics manufacturers in key markets, liberating them from their reliance on expensive petrochemicals while enabling them to create added value through use of waste CO2. Using an Econic catalyst system means up to 50% of the necessary fossil fuel-based raw materials can be substituted with CO2. This creates three compelling pillars of benefit for their initial target market: polyols for polyurethane. The technology delivers raw material cost savings of over $10M for a typical 50 kte/yr production unit, with retrofit investment on existing assets paid back within two years. Polyol performance benefits create further value to deliver overall dramatic margin increase for the polyol producer. For every tonne of CO2 used, a further two tonnes of emissions are avoided by reducing the use of fossil-based feedstock. By creating new value from waste CO2 for the plastics industry, Econic is building a future where a damaging greenhouse gas can be transformed for commercial and environmental gain.
