WASHINGTON — U.S. methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI) and polymeric MDI users have an expanded free resource to help them calculate their emissions from the Center for the Polyurethanes Industry.
CPI is part of the American Chemistry Council (ACC) and it has expanded its Regulatory Compliance Assistance Program (RCAP) by upgrading the interactive tool designed to help users of MDI and polymeric MDI (PMDI) in calculating emissions. The tool is available on the ACPI website.
RCAP can be used by companies in their Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) reporting. CPI expanded the tool in its "diisocyanates" category to address 12 additional examples of emissions from various applications including the manufacture of air filters, appliances, truck, automotive, boats, doors, mobile homes/motor homes, packaging, rebond, spray foam, spandex and water heaters.
CPI Senior Director Lee Salamone explained that new additions to CPI's RCAP program will make TRI reporting a more streamlined process for the polyurethanes community.
The interactive tool is available free of charge on CPI's website. CPI also maintains an RCAP tool for toluene diisocyanate (TDI) emissions.
