Bio-based chemistry

Bio-based chemistry is chemistry in which fossil resources are partially or completely replaced by resources derived from biomass. In particular, it helps limit reliance on fossil resources for the production of certain types of products and reduces the environmental footprint of these products. What is bio-based chemistry? An emerging sector

Bio-based chemistry

BIO-BASED CHEMISTRY OVERVIEW AND CHALLENGES The development of base material production processes for the chemicals sector using biomass addresses a triple objective: use renewable raw materials in order to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and tackle climate change, contribute to the development of a circular economy, reduce the chemical sector's

Renewable energies

The energy transition and tackling climate change depend on the development of new renewable resources. IFPEN proposes processes for the production of fuels, bases for the chemicals sector and gas from biomass. IFPEN also uses its expertise acquired in the field of oil and gas to offer solutions for the
