MARKETS

With our disruptive technology, we provide our customers with product solutions that enable the transition from a linear petro-based economy to a circular, plant-based economy.

Bloom offers alternatives to various non-sustainable ingredients heavily used in cosmetics & homecare products, functional materials, food & nutraceuticals, plastics and fuels.

Cosmetics & Homecare Products

Our lignin products have great potential towards:

  • Antioxidant​
  • UV filter​
  • Antimicrobial, antiviral​
  • Water-soluble​
  • Excellent emulsifier and dispersant
  • Efficient in low concentrations​

Functional Textiles

Our cellulose is especially suitable for applications such as crystalline nanocellulose or microfibrillated cellulose. 

  • Highly crystalline fibres
  • No harsh bleaching necessary
  • Excellent purity
  • No chemical modification of the cellulose structure

Bioplastics

Blooms offers sustainable degradable Bioplastics (eg. polyester, polyurethane). These materials show :

  • Excellent mechanical properties
  • Excellent barrier properties
  • Chemically recyclable from mixture of commodity plastics
  • Functional profile (anti-UV, antioxidant, antimicrobial, antiviral)
  • Bisphenol-A (BPA) replacement

Food Additives

Our biopolymer can be used as a sustainable ingredient in food products or  depolymerized to yield high amounts of sustainable phenolic monomers with great potential as food additives as well.

  • Water-soluble
  • Tunable properties
  • Excellent emulsifier and dispersant
  • Fully bio-based flavours 
  • Safe colorants 

Nutraceuticals

Bloom’s technology delivers a pure, non-condensed lignin biopolymer of well-known structure. Due to its excellent nature-given properties, our biopolymer can be used as a sustainable nutraceutical ingredient. 

  • Powerful antioxidant 
  • Genotoxicity protection
  • Gut health promoter
  • Antiviral and antimicrobial properties
  • Dietary fibre

Biofuels

Bloom produces energy-dense compounds that can be used as sustainable fuels and fuel additives for heavy transportation purposes. 

  • Energy from non-edible biomass
  • Tuneable properties
  • Sulphur-free biofuels 
  • Low ash content (<0.5%)
