BASF and Carlisle Construction Materials Investigate Zero Carbon Footprint Isocyanate Use

BASF and Carlisle Construction Materials have partnered to explore the use of Lupranate ZERO (Zero Emission, Renewable Origin), an isocyanate with a claimed zero carbon footprint, in the production of thermal insulation materials for buildings. 

Lupranate ZERO is used to create MDI polyisocyanurate boards and rigid polyurethane foam. Carlisle Construction Materials is committed to sustainability and has already made efforts such as converting to an electric vehicle fleet and achieving LEED Platinum certification.

BASF aims to achieve net zero emissions by 2050 and is focused on reducing the carbon footprint of its products.
