Transition to nature's own catalysts

Replace chemicals and solvents with biosolutions and ensure your long-term competitiveness, achieve a more cost-effective productivity, and higher quality.


Sustainably meeting the challenges of the modern fine chemicals market

As a fine chemical producer, you’re facing a growing number of challenges in today's dynamic market. Increasing demands from investors and customers—along with environmental concerns—mean that you’re pushing to transition to a more sustainable operation without sacrificing competitiveness. ​

The urgency to make this transition is driven by increasing EHS regulations, dwindling supplies of non-renewable metal-based catalysts, and the difficulty of achieving high process yield and consistent, high-quality results through conventional chemistry.
