The Polyurethanes 2009 Technical Conference will include energy efficiency and sustainability issues, which will make it a useful forum for appliance industry decision makers to hear about developments and trends, according to Neeva-Gayle Candelori, industry affairs director for the Center for the Polyurethanes Industry.

Innovations in blowing agents will be presented in a Blowing Agents technical session that will address advances in insulation efficiency and sustainability:

Caleb Management Services industry experts will open the session with a look at what the future holds for high GWP blowing agents in the context of the Montreal and Kyoto protocols.

Foam Supplies researchers will discuss a blowing agent that addresses both economic and environmental challenges.

Honeywell International scientists will introduce a new polyurethane foam gaseous blowing agent with low GWP to conform with the European Union’s F-Gas Regulation.

Arkema researchers will discuss development of a range of new blowing agents designed for most polyurethane applications.

DuPont scientists will close the session with the introduction of a novel foam expansion agent that is non-flammable, exhibits ideal thermal properties, and offers a low GWP.

The Chemistry & Fundamentals session includes a paper by industry experts from Japan-based Asahi Glass on high performance modified polyols with fluorination technologies that can be used for water-blown rigid polyurethane foams.

Appliance professionals may also be interested in a special issue session examining the legislative impacts of a “greening” regulatory landscape, as well as two related papers in the Environment, Health & Safety technical session that cover both the California Green Chemistry initiative and the Environmental Protections Agency’s (EPA) alternative Chemical Assessment and Management Program (ChAMP).

The Processing Innovations session includes four papers on new, more efficient mix heads for reducing costs and saving time.
