The best biomass fractionation technology in the world

Wood-based biomass is one of the richest sources of biochemicals on earth. Of the main constituents of wood – cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin – only cellulose, or pulp, tends to be utilised today, with the rest of the biomass generally being disposed of as waste.

CH-Bioforce is here to change this.

Crafted for industry »

CH-Bioforce provides a revolutionary technology for converting all biomass components into high-value material streams in an economically profitable way, thus replacing fossil and food-based raw materials in the process, for instance in areas such as textiles and packaging applications.

We provide renewable raw materials for sustainable living

Our biomaterials

Pulp

Dissolving pulp is manufactured for applications that require a high chemical purity and a particularly low hemicellulose content. The biggest market at present is the textile industry, where it is used as a substitute for cotton and oil-based raw materials.

Hemicellulose

About 25% of wood biomass is made up of hemicellulose. Due to its water solubility, biodegradability and amorphous, flexible structure, hemicellulose is an interesting raw material for several high-value purposes.

Lignin

Lignin constitutes about a third of wood biomass. Lignin is, by nature, a branched and cross-linked polymer which contains both hydrophobic and hydrophilic groups.
