Fractionation technology

The core of the Bio2X biorefinery concept is the formico® organosolv fractionation technology developed by Chempolis. Formico® is an enabling technology for valorizing agricultural residues. However, it also offers flexibility in utilizing many types of feedstock. Lignin, cellulose and hemicellulose are separated with high yield and purity, enabling their usage for various applications.
