Exclusive Site Visit

Econic Technologies Plant - Tuesday 25th September 2018

Clean-tech pioneer Econic Technologies' new customer demonstration plant located at The Heath, Runcorn, UK is designed to show how its innovative catalyst technologies enable polyol manufactures to incorporate CO2 as a feedstock for more sustainable polyurethanes thus reducing the reliance on fossil fuels and utilising lower-cost greenhouse gas as an alternative. The facility comprises all elements of the unique, low pressure production process in a dedicated unit, which produces CO2-based polyol samples for in-house and customer application studies. Part funded by a European Union H2020 SME award, the plant has been engineered to scale current technologies and is adaptable for future step-out innovations from the company’s creative catalyst development team.

There is no extra charge to attend the site visit, but spaces are limited and allocated on a first come first served basis. Please notify your interest for the site visit when booking for the conference.
