Creating new value from waste carbon dioxide for the plastics industry, building a future where greenhouse gas can be transformed for commercial and environmental gain.
Econic Technologies offers ground-breaking technology to plastics manufacturers in key markets, liberating them from their reliance on expensive petrochemicals and enabling them to create added value through use of waste carbon dioxide. Using an Econic catalyst system means up to 50 percent of the necessary fossil fuel-based raw materials can be substituted with carbon dioxide. This creates three compelling pillars of benefit for their initial target market. The technology delivers raw material cost savings of over $10 million 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 ton of carbon dioxide used, a further two tons of emissions are avoided by reducing the use of fossil-based feedstock. By creating new value from waste carbon dioxide for the plastics industry, Econic is building a future where a damaging greenhouse gas can be transformed for commercial and environmental gain.
