Identification

Bloom produces chemicals from biomass to make the chemical industry more sustainable.

Bloom isolates two pure biomass fractions, one being the lignin fraction which is efficiently and selectively transformed to bio-based aromatic molecules for flavor and fragrance market. The other is cellulose fraction which is sold to the textile industry to substitute petro-based synthetic fibers. Bloom upgrading process is a disruptive alternative to convert plant material (wood or agricultural side-streams) to cost-competitive building blocks, and thereby an excellent instrument to contribute to the efficient use of resources and promote a circular bio-economy.
