Green & Sustainable

 
 
Green Chemistry principles:
 
Waste_Icon copy.png

Waste prevention:

maximizing feedstock valorization rate

Caution.png

Less hazardous chemical synthesis:

no chlorine, no sulfur

chemical.png

Safer solvents and auxiliaries:

solvent from nature, stable, low toxicity, low volatility

energy.png

Design for energy efficiency:

energetically self-sustaining

Renewable_icon.png

Use of renewable feedstocks:

wood from sustainably managed forest and agricultural wastes as biorefinery raw materials

degrade.png

Design for degradation: Biodegradable products, from nature back to nature

Explosion_.png

Safer chemistry for accident prevention:

no toxic chemistry employed 

UN Sustainable Development Goals:

1.

7_SDG_MakeEveryDayCount_Gifs_GDU.gif

Affordable and clean energy:

carbon-neutral electricity and district heating as side product

2.

8_SDG_MakeEveryDayCount_Gifs_GDU.gif

Decent work and economic growth:

  • high biorefinery yield

  • profitable without economy of scales

  • less investment risk

  • more accessible 

3.
