Enabling closed-loop recycling: transform waste back into raw materials

Every year, millions of old mattresses are discarded and stack up in landfills or end up in incinerators. This mattress disposal problem has escalated over the years to become a global issue that requires an innovative solution and collaborative approach.

Through the RENUVA™ Mattress Recycling Program, we are recycling polyurethane foam from end-of-life mattresses and turning it into RENUVA™ polyols for use in new mattresses and other applications.

Helping to Reduce your environmental footprint

According to a recent external Lifecycle Analysis (LCA) RENUVA™ polyols offer the potential for a significant reduction in the environmental footprint associated with polyols. A key observation was that the RENUVA™ process leads to a 54% equivalent CO2 reduction compared to the standard polyol production.
