Environment

At Zotefoams we understand our responsibility to ensure that everything we do as a company, and as individuals, has the minimum negative impact on the world we live in.

The core technology we use to expand foam is inherently the most environmentally friendly way to produce the vital materials that we manufacture.

Unlike foam manufactured by our competitors, no other chemical additives are used to expand Zotefoams AZOTE® and ZOTEK® foam products. The basic foam has no toxic or volatile chemicals such as solid chemical residues, CFC, HCFC or volatile hydrocarbons.

And our revolutionary MuCell® extrusion technology is helping to produce lighter products that typically use 10-15% less raw material in their manufacture.

We rigorously monitor and record environmental incidents no matter how small, and continually examine our processes to look for ways of avoiding these incidents in the future. At the same time we continue to take steps to drive down energy consumption and the amount of waste we produce as a priority in every area of our activity.
