Environmentally-friendly chemicals from biomass, including 1,3 Butadiene for rubber production
Biokemik initiative will convert renewable resources into competitive Butadiene monomer and high-value intermediates. It will offer “Environmentally Friendly Chemicals” (1,3 Butadiene, Acetoine, 2,3 Butanediol, Methyl-Ethyl Ketone) from non-alimentary renewable resources (biomass), for Rubber, Elastomers, Plastics and Fine Chemicals, with low Carbon Footprint, in multiple applications. The main differential feature is that the Chemicals are obtained from cheap and abundant renewable sources, as compared to the fossil origin from 100% of the world’s synthetic monomer. The proprietary microorganisms involved are key aspects from the technological and economical perspectives.
