Developed the technology for the production of high-added value “natural” biomolecules
We respond to the global demand for sustainable solutions, replacing chemicals from synthetic and petrochemical origin, by applying a bio-refinery approach. Our technology fits with the circular economy scope to transition from traditional, into natural, more sustainable resource-efficient processes, using residues from sugar industry. We will confirm that it is possible to obtain valuable chemicals using economically, environmentally sustainable processes with low carbon footprint.
• Sustainable, eco-friendly, zero environmental impact process, using non-alimentary resources
• Fermentation process using safe (Risk 1), non-genetically modified, CECT-registered microorganisms
• Efficient process with low fermentation cycles enabling low manufacturing cost
• High selectivity-yield-purity, to obtain valuable “Natural Product” chemicals.

Sustainable development and industrialization of high value added "Green" Chemicals including BIO-2,3-BUTANEDIOL
BIO-2,3-BUTANEDIOL is used in plastics like Polyurethanes and Polyesters, in Pharmaceuticals, and fine chemicals. Used in conjunction with 1,4-Butanediol, it is possible to obtain more amorphous structures, and non-isocyanate polyurethanes (NIPUs). 2,3-BUTANEDIOL can also be used as chain extender in Polyethers and Polyester Isocyanates, and to obtain 2,3-Butanediol-Carbonate to be used in Urethanediols, to reduce the amount of di-isocyanate in Polyurethane synthesis and as a solvent.
Natural Bio-ACETOIN is used to replace Diacetyl as butter flavoring formulations (flavors & fragrances industries).
Synthetic ACETOIN is used to replace Diacetyl as butter flavoring formulations (flavors & fragrances industries).
METHYL-ETHYL-KETONE is a universal solvent used in paints, coatings, and pharmaceutical synthesis.
BUTADIENE is used in the synthesis of elastomers and synthetic rubbers, and in the manufacturing of plastics.
The Petrochemical industry is shifting raw materials for Ethylene manufacturing from Naphta to Lighter fraction and this dynamics will generate a shortage in BUTADIENE supply in the medium-long term. A Bio-BUTADIENE sustainable process would enable balance the market and will be well accepted by world companies to reduce carbon footprint. Applications: Elastomers, Rubbers (SBS,SEBS, SIS, SBR, NBR), Plastics (Nylon, ABS, HIPS, Epoxy).
