UNDP is implementing a project preparation on “Development and evaluation of spray foam Polyols systems for buildings using HFOs as blowing agent” in coordination with Ozone cell, Ministry of Environment, Forest & climate change, Government of India.
The project envisage the development and evaluation of formulations using HFO-1233zd(E) for spray foams in the form of pre-blended polyols for high-ambient conditions prevailing in the country.

The study would include polyol system optimization in terms of percentage use of blowing agent to minimize the cost of insulation per unit surface area. The demonstration project would also involve field trials in the downstream enterprises (Spray foam service providers).  Services of an Individual consultant are sought for development of the above said demonstration project proposal for submission to the Meeting of the Executive Committee (Ex-Com) of the Multilateral Fund (MLF)for Implementation of Montreal Protocol.
