Spain's Merquinsa bag Green Excellence Award for its bio-TPUs

02-Mar-09
Spain-based thermoplastic polyurethane producer, Merquinsa has recently been granted the Frost & Sullivan 2008 Global Thermoplastic Urethane (TPU) Product Innovation Green Excellence of the Year Award. This award recognizes Merquinsa´s innovation in biopolymers, with its groundbreaking Bio TPU made from renewable carbon resources and successfully marketed globally under Pearlthane® and Pearlbond® ECO brands for a wide range of "green" electronics, sports, automotive, footwear and adhesive applications, among others. Bio TPUs are high-performance biopolymers with a biocontent from 20 to 90% according to ASTM D6866, offering a unique set of properties, such as low density, high flexibility, abrasion resistance, good toughness and processability. These Bio TPUs are fully recyclable but not biodegradable. A preliminary life cycle assessment (LCA) indicates that manufacturing Pearlthane® and Pearlbond® ECO product lines result in 40% less global warming emissions. Frost & Sullivan, the Growth Partnership Company, presents its Green Excellence Awards annually to companies that have demonstrated leadership towards implementing sustainable and environmentally conscious initiatives. Recipient companies have demonstrated a commitment to a low-carbon society.
