Partnership Formed to Develop Biomass Chemical Processes
Biogis Center, a research center developed jointly following an agreement between De Dietrich and SAS Pivert, seeks to industrialize new processes using bio-based raw materials, particularly oilseed biomass.
“Research advances in catalytic chemistry require adaptable equipment capable of working in diverse conditions in order to develop sustainable and competitive solutions. We work towards this goal with De Dietrich, to develop innovative plant-based chemistry solutions.” says SAS Pivert CEO Gilles Ravot.
The center is equipped with a reaction and distillation system that is entirely remote controlled (utilities and automation), allowing distillations and reaction mixtures such as homogenization, suspension, dispersion and crystallization to be performed on a variety of oilseed biomasses.
It includes several thematic laboratories, including a catalytic chemistry unit. The processes developed are guided by the principle of sustainable development.
