LEAF delivers environmental benefits throughout its lifecycle, making a positive impact across the entire value chain.
Foams produced from LEAF are biodegradable, recyclable and net zero carbon.
LEAF is produced from renewable sources. This means it has a much lower environmental impact than petroleum-based polyols, with lower energy expenditure and negative carbon footprint. LEAF is biodegradable and does not leave toxic residues in the environment.
Finally, the production of LEAF polyurethanes demonstrates social responsibility through the creation of local supply chains that integrate small producers and cooperatives, promoting local economic development.
For all these reasons, LEAF is aligned with the ESG concepts, which seek to promote environmental sustainability, social responsibility, and good corporate governance.
LEAF contributes to reducing carbon footprints by replacing traditional petrochemical-based polyols with renewable resources.
It is a sustainable and ecological alternative, biodegradable and non-toxic, making it safe for use in various products.
In doing so, it helps reduce the environmental impact of production and manufacturing processes.
In a production cycle analysis – made by an independent company – 1 kg of LEAF polyol, when compared with 1 kg of fossil-based polyol, offers a significant advantage.
In this comparative scenario, we have the following results:
Fossil polyol: +3.93 kg CO2eq/kg → positive carbon emission
LEAF polyol: -0.18 kg CO2eq/kg → negative carbon emission
Each ton of LEAF allows foamers/transformers to offset 180kg of carbon, which can be turned into credit in the chain*
LEAF delivers environmental benefits throughout its lifecycle, making a positive impact across the entire value chain
Being 100% recyclable, it maintains the same characteristics after recycling
Our polyol generates carbon credits, and is certified by renowned ESG certification agencies
It is non-toxic and biodegrades under favorable soil conditions, unlike other plastic products and foams
