History

 

Since its establishment in 1995, Chempolis has been strongly focused on developing proprietary biorefining technologies. Chempolis has been granted over 100 patents, and the key features of the technology have been recognized both domestically and internationally. Selected milestones in the Chempolis’s history include the following:

 

  • 1996 – demonstration of the formicofib™ technology on a pilot scale
  • 1997 – successful paper machine trials using formicofib™ non-wood pulp at world-record speed
  • 2004 Completetion of detailed engineering for a biorefinery based on the formicofib™ technology
  • 2005 – 50th granted patent
  • 2006 – in a study by IFC (a private sector arm of the World Bank), Chempolis’s formicofib™ technology was evaluated as the most economical and environmentally sustainable non-wood pulping technology
  • 2007 – Acquisition of Orion pharmaceutical facilities and factory and establishment of Chempolis Biorefining Park
  • 2008- in a study by the Department of Energy of the USA, Chempolis’s formicofib™ technology was evaluated as the most energy-efficient pulping technology2008 – Licence agreement with UPM, a leading Finnish paper company to use formicofib™ technology for production of TCF-bleached straw pulp
  • 2008 – Chempolis commenced production line of based on formicofib™ technology at its on site at Chempolis Biorefining Park
  • 2009 – Successful papermaking production test runs completed using formicofib™ non-wood pulp at world record speed
