The result of a “technopush” project in 2015, Solvay Bicarbonate France determined broad interest in a substitute for azodicarboamide (ADCA), a blowing agent in plastics increasingly restricted by regulation Solvay developed a solution based on a specific derived sodium bicarbonate, a leavening agent in food applications, acting as a safe and efficient endothermic blowing agent. Pursuing sustainable chemistry, Solvay is developing a range of chemical blowing agents based on sodium bicarbonate formulations for the PVC market.
