Europe's largest flexible foam manufacturer, Recticel, has launched a line of foams that contain Cargill's soybean-oil-based polyols rather than traditional polyols, which are made by reacting propylene oxide with an alcohol. Cargill estimates that replacing 1 million lb of traditional polyols with its BiOH brand polyols will save 2,200 barrels of crude oil.
