Minnesota Foam Blowing Agent Substitution

$0.01 per kg

Blowing agents are a key ingredient in the production of foam. Standard ones contain chemicals that release greenhouse gases (GHGs) during manufacturing, use, and end-of-life destruction. Moreover, most of those currently on the market today contain hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) blowing agents, which represent powerful GHGs when released into the atmosphere—hundreds to thousands of times more potent than carbon dioxide. This project reduces greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions beyond regulatory compliance by replacing HFCs with next-generation blowing agents that have near-zero global warming potential. Unlike many other voluntary reduction projects that use estimates, these reductions are real and quantifiable. The process also has the added benefit of lowering utility bills through reduced energy consumption in new builds or retrofits of existing buildings. With decades of experience, 1st Climate Solutions is a trusted partner helping companies meet their environmental goals. Founded in 1982, the organization became an early leader in the emission-reduction credit markets by helping companies meet New Source Review compliance standards under The Federal Clean Air Act. Since then, it has broadened its expertise to the voluntary carbon reduction markets, with clients that include some of the top names in the Fortune 500.
