Biobased, non-toxic solvents
to increase agricultural production.
Corbion's aim is to replace fossil-based chemicals in selected markets by offering products with similar or improved functionality, lower cost-in-use, and enhanced environmental credentials.
Biochemicals can be used in a wide array of products, ranging from cleaning products and adhesives to plastic products and cosmetics. Corbion is one of the most experienced companies in the production of organic acid derived chemicals through fermentation of carbohydrates. We play an important role in the shift from fossil-oil-based chemicals to biobased chemicals, with strong value propositions, combining sustainable solutions with performance in different applications.
Our technology is based on renewable resources. Our lactic acid technology is key in this, but we also identify business opportunities in adjacent organic acid platforms, such as biobased succinic acid* and Bio-FDCA**.
* Biobased succinic acid - biobased building block for a wide variety of chemicals. Applications can be in bioplastics, chemical intermediates, solvents, polyurethanes, and plasticizers.
**Bio-FDCA - a promising renewable building block for resins and plastics. (e.g. alternative for PET. PET is widely known as the material used to manufacture soft drink bottles)
The world of biochemicals
Corbion's main existing markets are home and personal care, pharma, electronics, agrochemical intermediates and medical biomaterials. We are developing further in the markets for coatings, adhesives, solvents and elastomers (CASE), bioplastics (PLA) (for example in electronics, packaging, automotive), biobased succinic acid, and animal health.
In biochemicals, Corbion is a fast-growing, innovative supplier of fermentation-derived, sustainably sourced biochemicals.
