The latest meeting of the project consortium took place on November 20-22, 2018. It was hosted by the partner RAMPF Eco Solutions at its facilities in Grafenberg, Germany. The meeting was a great opportunity for partners to exchange information on the progress achieved during the last months and to plan ahead, as the project is entering its final phase and will be concluded at the end of 2019.
The hosting partner RAMPF Eco Solutions also took the opportunity to take the project partners on a guided tour of its laboratories and production facilities in Pirmasens, a town in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany. There, RAMPF Eco Solutions has been doing research on and developing alternative polyols for over 25 years. In two of the largest multi-functional plants in Europe, tailored polyols are manufactured from PU waste materials or PET / PSA using solvolysis (glycolysis, acidolysis and polyolysis). After being recycled through either RAMPF Eco Solutions or another PU systems house, the resulting basic polyols are integrated back into the customer’s production process. “This creates a cycle that delivers both environmental and economic benefits, as the recycled polyols are of very high quality and less expensive than primary polyols”, explained Marco Werth, Director of Sales & Marketing at RAMPF Eco Solutions, during the tour. “Furthermore, disposal costs are significantly reduced and customers make themselves less dependent on dwindling petrochemical raw materials.”
