FACT SHEET, Voluntary Approach to Managing ODS Foam at Equipment, End-of-Life: The US Model
This fact sheet describes the voluntary approach used in the United States to reduce emissions from household refrigeration and air-conditioning equipment at the end of life (EOL) to help National Ozone Units (NOUs) craft locally appropriate schemes that will reduce emissions of ODS refrigerant and foams from refrigeration equipment once it reach the EOL. Specifically, this fact sheet describes the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s (U.S. EPA’s) voluntary Responsible Appliance Disposal (RAD) Program so that NOUs can develop and adapt the lessons learned in the U.S. RAD program to create an ODS management strategy that best fits their national circumstances.

"Natural polyols used in catering fridges", in Urethanes Technology International, Vol. 24, No. 4, August/September 2007
An article about a new range of commercial catering refrigeration units, made by the British manufacturer Precision, that use 'Envirofoam R2007', a new foam "based on vegetable oils rather than on petrochemicals". The company states that Envirofoam "also requires less energy to produce than conventional PU foams", has "insulating properties and strength…every bit as good as a conventional foam", and has a blowing agent that falls within the "less than 5" category for global warming. In addition, one of the companies that developed a polymer (derived from rapeseed oil) that was used in the foam stated that, in estimate, "the energy used to produce the foam's new vegetable-based polyols is about one-tenth of that used to manufacture conventional polyols", and that "the total energy demand of the rigid foam polyols is "estimated at 80 percent lower than the convetional materials" ".
