Article "Greener polyurethanes for space and beyond" was published in the portal of European Space Agency 14.01.2021 and describes cooperation of company TOSEDA in the Czech Republic and the Latvian State Institute of Wood Chemistry in ESA Associate Member State Latvia with ArianeGroup in Germany – manufacturing the Ariane 6 launcher – providing requirements for launcher-grade thermo-insulating foam (see article).

"“It might seem strange that a lab working on wood chemistry ended up with such experience, but we have been working on PUs for more than half a century,” comments Director of the Institute Ugis Cabulis.
