Countless novel routes for the production of bulk chemicals in a sustainable fashion. Bloom’s mission is to provide the solutions that will drive the transition from linear fossil-resources to circular, plant-based models.
Bloom provides ground-breaking technologies to manufacture chemicals and fuels from plant material. The biorefining technologies are the most selective on the market and allow to produce, at scale, a number of products listed here:
Bloom provides cost-competitive mono-aromatics and sugars to drive the transition to a more sustainable chemical industry. These products are typically produced from wood or agricultural wastes and can substitute current fossil-based carbons in applications such as fragrances, flavours, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, etc.
Bulk chemicals (poly-aromatics and sugars)
Bulk chemicals are a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. Bloom’s bulk products include lignin-derived polyaromatics or sugar syrups that show increased solubility and reactivity in blends or as main component. Using these products will allow to bridge the last mile towards a fully bio-based material and ensure the sustainability of your products.
Polyester & composites (sugar-based polymers, polyurethanes)
Bloom has designed new bio-based products to satisfy market demand in sustainable materials. Among those, a PET-like polyester, which is recyclable, biodegradable and bio-based, while outperforming other sustainable polymers in physical properties such as gas barrier and tensile strength. Furthermore, we have developed lignin-derived materials that are suitable for polyurethanes and composite production.
Fibers (dissolving pulp)
Efficient deconstruction and delignifiction leads to an outstanding cellulose pulp. The removal of hemicellulose for the fibres makes this product suitable for viscose production packaging and microcrystalline products.
Example of applications:
- Textile fibers
Fuels & fuel additives (advanced heavy biofuels)
The replacement of heavy fuels requires the design of new products based on sustainable materials. Biofuels will play an important role to decarbonize shipping and aviation industries. Bloom is currently developing state-of-the-art biofuels from side streams of the biorefining process. These blends are designed to be used in existing engines in order to ensure rapid implementation.
