Chemical recycling solutions by RAMPF

RAMPF (Wixom, MI, USA) is presenting its groundbreaking technology for the chemical recycling of polyurethane (PU) and rPET waste to high-quality polyols at Foam Expo 2024 in Novi, MI, from June 25 to 27 – booth 2220.

The company’s business division manager Eco Solutions. Shakti Mukerjee, will moderate the panel discussion “Challenges in Polyurethane Recycling in the United States and How to Succeed on an Industrial Scale” on Wednesday, June 26, from 11am to 12pm.

Rampf has been dedicated to the chemical recycling of PU since 1992 – as one of the very first companies to do so. Using solvolysis (glycolysis, acidolysis, and aminolysis), residues such as:
• PU foam scraps from used mattresses, carpet and flooring, furniture, car seats, motorcycle seats, insulation materials, fitness and leisure items
• Post-consumer PET from beverage bottles, fabrics, and fibres are processed to high-quality recycled polyols.

These are used as a secondary resource for the manufacture of new products in several industries such as automotive, aerospace, construction, electrical/electronics, energy technology, filter, household appliance, medical technology, rail, ship building, and wood/furniture.

Rampf recycled polyols are comparable with polyols typically obtained from virgin raw materials, both in terms of quality and technical properties. The high-performance materials are tailored precisely to the customer's production set-up and can therefore be used directly in the manufacture of new products.

Rampf has also developed chemical processes for the use of PET/PSA, other polyesters (PLA, PC, PHB), and renewable or biobased raw materials (e.g. vegetable oils and lignin) as raw materials for the manufacture of biobased recycled polyols. AT
