From cradle to gate. Climate neutral MDI.

We are consistently pursuing our path to a circular economy and more sustainability. Now we are offering you a climate neutral MDI (methylene diphenyl diisocyanate), thanks to the use of alternative raw materials, based on plant waste.

Keeping it neutral

The alternative raw materials are allocated to the products with the help of certified mass balancing according to ISCC PLUS, so no CO2 emissions are generated in this part of the value-added cycle and the production process is more sustainable.

"With the launch of our climate neutral MDI, we are now further expanding our portfolio of sustainable products. This will enable us to even better support our customers in large parts of the world in meeting their own sustainability goals and transitioning to a circular economy."

Sucheta Govil

Chief Commercial Officer at Covestro

Carbon neutrality is the result of an internal assessment of a partial product life cycle from raw material extraction (cradle) to the factory gate (of Covestro), also known as cradle-to-gate assessment. The methodology of our LCA, for which an external audit and certification will soon be available, is based on the ISO 14040 and 14044 standards. The calculation takes into account biogenic carbon sequestration based on preliminary data from the supply chain. No compensation measures were applied.

"Climate neutral products are an important factor in achieving our sustainability goals. Our climate neutral MDI has another major advantage: it is a drop-in solution – so our customers can use it immediately in their production without any changeover and a higher energy efficiency.”

Hermann-Josef Dörholt

Global Head of Performance Materials at Covestro

We don’t say it’s easy. But possible.

We are on the road to climate neutrality by 2035 for scope 1 and 2.

Even more sustainable building insulation

MDI (methylene diphenyl diisocyanate) is an indispensable raw material in the construction industry for the production of polyurethane (PU) insulation boards and sandwich panels, among other products. These have proven their value and environmental impact for many years as highly efficient elements in the thermal insulation of buildings and sustainable construction of Green Buildings. The heating or cooling requirements of buildings can be reduced by up to 70 percent through the use of PU insulation. Because PU insulation elements can therefore be designed thinner to achieve good insulation performance already, they save resources and make more usable space accessible than other insulation materials within the construction industry.

In addition to the good thermal insulation properties of PU insulating materials, our climate neutral MDI (methylene diphenyl diisocyanate) now provides a further sustainability benefit: By practically avoiding emissions during its production, it even helps to reduce embodied carbon over the life cycle of a building and the building materials. The use of PU insulating materials made from it in new buildings as well as in the renovation of older construction projects can thus make an important contribution to the responsible use of primary resources and to significantly reducing CO2 emissions for a positive environmental impact.
