Polaris Renewables is developing proprietary technology for the production of fully renewable non-isocyanate polyurethanes (NIPUs) for use in foams, coatings, and adhesives with footwear, fabrics and outdoor gear chosen as the initial target markets. Formulations include both thermoplastics, thermosets, and vitrimers. This technology eliminates the use of toxic petrochemical isocyanates and provides significant sustainability advantages. The cost of production is comparable to commercial polyurethanes and manufacturing should require little or no changes to existing facilities....
