R&D

Our approach is based on our extensive R&D experience and our belief that innovation is essential to delivering truly sustainable results.

Over the last few years, we have invested around €20 million in R&D. Including the extensive work that we have carried out with our customers and our university partners, the figure is even higher. The result is a large portfolio of patents, which number more than 100 in all today. Developing sustainable processes and technologies has been our priority for decades. As our solutions are expected to last for decades too, reliability, usability, and safety are important priorities. Our biorefinery enables us to give our customers a firsthand look at what our technologies can offer and provides us with an optimal facility for piloting R&D work. We can selectively fractionate customer-sourced biomasses on an industrial scale, test product properties, and generate detailed data for dimensioning the machinery and systems needed for large industrial biorefineries.
