In the UK we are still seeing significant volumes of polyurethane foam ending up in Landfill. Depending on the composition of the material (i.e. is it pure polyurethane or comingled with another material) this will have an impact on the initial process it needs to go through for recovery.
Recycling polyurethane foams is a standard process at CHC and we handle high volumes of polyurethane foam from the automotive, retail and manufacturing industries. Non-contaminated material is baled and sent for recycling within the UK. Comingled foams containing metals are shredded and we recover the metals, this leaves us with pure polyurethane which we can recycle into new foam products.
Energy from waste through incineration is also an option that we offer. This process is mainly used for comingled products that can’t be separated and is carried out by burning the materials for heat recovery.
