Polyurethane, used everywhere in the construction industry and in nearly every aspect of our daily lives, is also the material of choice for insulated shipping packaging. Sofrigam is placing the challenges of sustainable development at the core of its strategy and the Polyurethane is a cornerstone of Sofrigam’s environmental policy. Let us take a moment to explain why.
The manufacture of polyurethane requires less than 0.1% of the oil consumed around the world and its many properties yield economies up to 100 times greater. In addition to being one of the least energy-intensive insulating materials in factory manufacturing, the service life of polyurethane is longer than that of other insulating materials.
Polyurethane is both thinner and more efficient than other types of insulating material. This reduces the volume of the insulating material required. As a result, the manufacture of insulated containers consumes less energy and they are lighter to transport. This yields significant energy savings!
Furthermore, the same applies to the motor industry: polyurethane is used to reduce the weight of vehicles and, in turn, to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
Sofrigam has opted for an efficient insulating material that will also help to save the planet. Here are 3 of the recycling solutions we have put in place:
Sofrigam cold chain shipping packaging solutions, produced in the form of polyurethane panels, are used every day to transport thousands of vaccines, ophthalmic products, chemotherapy solutions and other heat sensitive medicines throughout the world. They maintain constant temperatures for up to 72 hours. Contact us to find out more.
