Back in 2011, wood chemistry specialists Sebastian von Schoultz, Lari Vähäsalo and Nicholas Lax made a surprising discovery: by using vacuum and ensuring precise chemical control, they discovered it was possible to extract hemicelluloses in high yield and purity in their native polymeric form. None of the competing processes were able to maintain this polymeric form, or the yield and purity of their extracts were otherwise minuscule. von Schoultz, Vähäsalo and Lax knew they had created something special and started to develop their finding further.
After a few years of experiments, CH-Bioforce Oy was established in 2016 together with Oy Chemec Ab. The Chemec Group operates in the chemical industry, which is keen to replace fossil and food-based materials with bio-based raw materials.
