CH-Bioforce – The Bioforce of Nature

Biomaterials

Our technology fractionates gently all three main constituents of biomass: pulp, hemicellulose and lignin. These biomaterials can be used for a surprisingly wide range of purposes.

  • CH-Bioforce – Pulp

Cellulose

Dissolving cellulose 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.

  • CH-Bioforce – Hemicellulose

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, CH-Bioforce

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.
