Third-generation biorefinery commissioned

Third-generation biorefinery commissioned

According to Chempolis’ President and Chief Executive Officer, Esa Rousu, the demonstration plant produces sample materials and production batches for further processing and refining. In addition, it is used as a test plant for new materials and the final testing of new biorefined products.

“The demonstration plant represents the third-generation because it can utilise – unlike refineries based on earlier technologies – the entire vegetable matter and produce a number of biomass-based products and chemicals,” says Rousu.

Chempolis develops environmentally friendly biorefining technologies and production solutions, which utilise non-wood and non-food raw materials, such as straw, reeds, corn stem and bagasse.

The biorefinery is expected to reach full production during the spring.
