Basf has worked out a chemical recycling process for used mattresses which breaks down flexible polyurethane back to its two building blocks. Laboratory tests have successfully started at the Schwarzheide site in Brandenburg, Germany. Most mattresses are thrown away after an average of ten years, squandering resources and creating high quantities of waste.
