A sector for the future
Plant-based chemistry is recognised as a strategic sector in France and in Europe
Complementing to fossil-based chemistry, plant-based chemistry is ancestral (pigments, detergents, cosmetic ingredients, etc.).
It developed with agriculture and forestry. In the face of new energy challenges and the depletion of fossil resources, the sector has been growing constantly for a decade and its innovations become an industrial reality.
Plant-based chemistry is highly innovative both in terms of the molecules with new functions it offers and in terms of the process developments enabling it to use biomass to manufacture products and materials hitherto obtained only by using fossil resources.
An integral part of the bioeconomy, it offers tremendous technological and economic advantages which are factors for sustainable growth for French and international companies.
