BioAmber Presented Viability of Bio-based Solutions in Polyurethanes at CASE 2013

Published on 2013-12-27. Author : SpecialChem

This year, the CASE Conference focused on Coatings & Polyurethane technologies. Technical decision makers from nine different companies, the US EPA and various academic groups gathered in Amsterdam. The event featured fifteen technical presentations.

The 1-1/2 day conference included talks from BioAmber, Bayer, BASF, Nitoil, and Chemtura. The emphasis was on polyurethane dispersion (PUD), sustainable materials and their applications. The take-away message was that waterborne PUDs are an active area of interest and play a significant role in helping companies achieve their sustainability targets.

It was an excellent opportunity for BioAmber to present technical papers on coatings and PUDs featuring recent findings obtained from an on-going study between BioAmber and North Dakota State University. The presentation resonated well with the audience.

The company highlighted initial results suggesting improved PUD stability with high molecular weight bio-based succinic acid derived polyester-polyols and improved solvent resistance of the PUD coatings. These findings suggest that the use of bio-based succinic acid polyesters-polyols can provide performance, differentiation, sustainability and a lower carbon footprint for CASE applications.

BioAmber presentor Bill Coggio (Global Application Engineer & Technical Support for BioAmber), demonstrated existing solutions for the use of bio-based materials in polyurethanes and confirmed BioAmber's positioning as an innovative & reliable partner in the CASE sector.
