We were present to showcase our extensive polyether polyester portfolio at Utech Europe 2021, the leading international three-day exhibition and conference for the global polyurethanes industry, in Maastricht, The Netherlands.

Our presence was mainly focused on our Net Zero Emissions by 2050 commitment and our circular economy solutions, with our ambition of recycling the equivalent of 20% of its polyolefin production by 2030.

On this occasion, we were particularly enthusiastic about introducing to all present our plan to build Spain's first chemical polyurethane foam recycling plant at our Puertollano Industrial Complex. The recycling plant will be capable of processing over 2,000 metric tons of waste per year. Once the plant is operational, by the end of 2022, we will be able to offer our customers circular polyols with recycled polyurethane foam content from the Repsol Reciclex® range.

We were thrilled to have the opportunity again to meet our clients and stakeholders to discover opportunities and share new projects and developments.
