Bloom maximizes the usage of plant material with cutting-edge science.
Our technology offers the possibility to break through current limitations. With our aldehyde-assisted fractionation (AAF) technology, we efficiently separate the cellulose fraction while stabilizing lignin polymer and hemicellulose-derived sugars. These stabilized structures allow, for the first time, to valorize the full potential of lignin and hemicellulose.
