ST. LOUIS, MO, May 10, 2017 – Foam Supplies, Inc. (FSI), the industry leader in environmentally responsible polyurethane products, worked in partnership with the global law firm, Dentons, to develop a revolutionary carbon offset methodology which earned Dentons the American Carbon Registry’s prestigious 2017 Innovation Award.
The firm was recognized for its offset methodology for “Transition to Advanced Formulation Blowing Agents in Foam Manufacturing and Use” at the American Carbon Registry’s annual awards event on April 19, 2017 in San Francisco. Jeffrey Fort, an Environmental Partner at Dentons, and Todd Keske, President of FSI, were on hand to accept the award.
The unique methodology measures carbon offsets used by manufacturers of polyurethane foam and is designed to provide incentives to use no- or low-Global Warming Potential (GWP) blowing agents during the manufacturing process. The methodology is intended to provide access to carbon finance to increase acceptance of available advanced technologies and accelerate a transition to no- or low-GWP blowing agents in these sectors more rapidly than would otherwise occur. Currently, this methodology presents a low-cost approach to reducing greenhouse gases.
FSI, creator of the patented zero-GWP ecomate® blowing agent technology, provided Dentons with both the initial concept for the methodology as well as with critical support during its development.
