Sustainable use of wheat grain
Thinking holistically is all about taking the know-how from the world leading Danish agricultural sector and combining it with the needs in the chemicals market
Producing food, feed and biochemical products, while replacing petrochemical products.
To tie carbon from cultivated plants into new products and materials that replaces fossil carbon is a part of the Green Transition
The task for Dansk Biokemi is to intelligently utilize an existing resource and our focus is wheat grain. This is done by applying a process that separate the valuable fractions of proteins, oils and starch (sugars), and to use the sugars (about 60 % of the seed) as raw material for new bio-materials such as Methyl Ethylene Glycols, which in turn is used in the production of plant-based polyester.
