Fomo Products Inc. was invited to attend a White House sponsored event to pledge its commitment to reducing global emissions. The event took place on October 15, with the Obama Administration, private-sector leaders and members of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Department of Energy (DOE).
During the event, Fomo announced that 95 percent of its one-component aerosol can products will be converted from hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) to HFOs and hydrocarbons by summer 2016. In addition, it announced that 25 percent of all of its low pressure spray polyurethane foam formulations will be converted from HFCs to HFOs by summer 2016.
“We’re honored to be a part of this huge endeavor alongside a number of very prestigious private-sector companies,” said Mojee Cline, Ph.D., Vice President, Technology, Fomo Products. “As we strive to provide innovations that improve, we will continue to lead the industry as we work to reduce our carbon footprint.”
Fomo has been developing, manufacturing and selling high-quality, low pressure polyurethane foam products that provide energy conservation solutions to homes and buildings. This focus will continue with Fomo’s platform development of new products that contain significantly lower global warming potential (GWP) blowing agents.
