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. We turn agricultural waste into biobased chemicals. The future of chemistry!
The solid foundation
Furfural manufactured from agricultural waste streams is the foundation for manufacturing many derivative products, including furfuryl alcohol, tetrahydrofurfuryl alcohol, 2-methyltetrahydrofuran and various other chemicals. Find out more about our products and applications.
