Our chemical platform finds its origins in sugarcane. The bagasse – the fibers that are left over once the sugar has been extracted – is used to produce furfural, an amazing chemical based on biomass. No need for further depletion of fossil-based materials such as crude oil, but a renewable resource that replenishes itself every year. The future of chemistry!
The solid foundation
Furfural is the foundation for manufacturing many derivative products, including furfuryl alcohol, tetrahydrofurfuryl alcohol, methylfuran and various other chemicals.
Think and act sustainably: the IFC way

The sole industrial source
Furfural is the sole industrial source for furfuryl alcohol, tetrahydrofurfuryl alcohol, furoic acid, furfurylamine, methylfuran and furan.
