CO2 as a polymer component


The objective of the joint project is the development of a procedure for using carbon dioxide for developing polymers. The stabilisation of greenhouse gases achieved through this process prevents emissions and contributes to resource protection. Success in the project can primarily be seen in the development of catalyst systems for the synthesis of polycarbonate and polyurethane, as well as for the reaction of epoxides with CO2.
