Manali Petrochemicals Limited (MPL) has signed a Memorandum of  Understanding (MoU) with Econic Technologies for introducing more environment friendly, CO2 containing polyols, into the  $28Bn  global polyols market.

As per the regulatory filing, the partnership involves  MPL  and  Econic collaborating to scale the technology at  MPL's pilot plant in  India.  On successful completion,  this will be followed by the introduction of the process to one of the production trains in  MPL's main plant. 

The shared intent is to bring  COr containing polyols to  MPL's customers.
