Decrease CO2 and Reduce Petroleum Usage
DeCoto is an eco-friendly biobased foam in which fossil EVA is replaced with biobased carbon. DeCoto is made from a wide range of renewable biobased feedstock including bamboo, rice husks, straw, wood, also recycled agricultural wastes, which are not eligible for food or feed production. Biobased materials have the unique potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions or even be carbon neutral. Plants absorb atmospheric carbon dioxide as they grow and constitutes a temporary removal of greenhouse gases (CO2) from the atmosphere. DeCoto biobased foam can also help to reduce the dependency on limited fossil resources, which are expected to become significantly more expensive in the coming decades.
DeCoto is tested by BETA lab, and biobased carbon content is up to 30%. it conforms to USDA BioPreferred Program under foam intermediates (22%) category.
USDA BioPreferred Program
DeCoto is also available in resins which gives you the flexibility to adjust your compound for your desired properties; it is suitable for injection and expansion foams.
30% BIOBASED CARBON
DeCoto is made from a wide range of renewable biobased feedstock including bamboo, rice husks. Straw, wood and agricultural waste, which are not eligible for food or feed production.
38% FOSSIL EVA REDUCTION
Fossil EVA usage is reduced which produces less harmful and toxic materials that cause environmental pollution.
23% CO2 EMISSION REDUCTION
The production of DeCoto foam decreases CO2 emission by up to 23%. Because fossil fuel usage is reduced. The amount of decreased CO2 equals 18-40 trees CO2 in annual absorption.
50% RENEWABLE RESOURCES
DeCoto contains up to 50% renewable materials. It can also be recycled and is produced by using renewable energy sources
