Repsol chooses Rampf technology for PU recycling project

The move is part of Repsol's plan to turn its production sites into areas with a low, zero or even negative carbon footprint


Spanish chemical company Repsol SA will construct a 12 million euro ($14.2 million), polyurethane-to-polyol plant able to recycle more than 2,000 metric tons per year.  It will use Rampf Group’s Ecosolutions technology.

The plant, which will use foam collected by a number of Spain’s national recovery organizations, is scheduled to come on stream in 2022.

Repsol, based in Puertollano, Spain, said that the Rampf Ecosolutions process will “produce recycled polyol with the quality adapted to be used in flexible foam slabstock applications.”

The move is part of Repsol’s plan to turn its production sites into areas with a low, zero or even negative carbon footprint. Spain scraps an estimated 4 million mattresses each year.
