Producing chemicals through sustainable raw materials
Industry is changing its thinking, moving away from finite resources towards sustainable production that conserves resources. The EU-funded project IMPRESS is accelerating this transition by working on a novel biorefinery concept, which allows the conversion of plant-based non-food materials into important base chemicals. The process involves the use of liquid chromatography purification technology, including a very efficient continuous separation technology. If successful, this never-before-seen kind of biorefinery integrating disruptive upstream and downstream technologies will contribute to a significant decrease in greenhouse gas emissions (20 %), and capital and operational expenditure (20 %).
