An innovation with great potential...
We are developing a process to make new green chemistry molecules, 5-HMF (Hydroxymethyl furfural) and FDCA (Furandicarboxylic acid) in order for bio-based and renewable resources to replace fossil resources.
These molecules are main constituent of new materials that will provide major benefits for the economy, the environment and society.
... And decisive advantages
In particular, the FDCA resulting from the CLIMICALS’ process will produce:
High-performance epoxies to make adhesives, paints, coatings compatible with health issues
PEF bioplastics, with better characteristics than traditional and fossil PET-type plastics
Thus, we contribute to:
Limiting greenhouse gas emissions
Valorisation of natural resources
Development of local economies
