From Waste to Value - Sustainable Biopolymers to Replace Fossil Raw Materials

09 Nov 2022
Sustainable Materials for Manufacturing & Construction
There is huge demand for biopolymers on the market. Consumer demand and tightening regulations force manufacturing industries to find more sustainable ways to produce our daily consumables. CH-Bioforce has a solution for this. CH-Bioforce has developed a technology, which gently extracts all main components of lignocellulosic biomass in one process without any harsh chemicals. Hemicellulose fractionation forms the core of our innovation and is achieved through pressurized hot water extraction (PHWE). The resulting materials – high-purity cellulose, polymeric hemicellulose and sulphur-free lignin – are extremely pure and close to their natural form. Each of our high-quality bio-polymers has a wide range of end applications, providing an alternative for fossil-based materials and food-based starch or cotton. Furthermore, our process can utilize almost any kind of biomass as feedstock like industrial and agricultural waste streams such as straw
