Borregaard is a major supplier of advanced bioethanol, providing for personal care ingredients and household, industrial and institutional purposes.
Our bioethanol can be used in a wide number of applications, including:
- Hand sanitisers
- Liquid cleaners
- Eco-friendly solvents
- Cosmetic alcohol formulations
While first generation ethanol is based on feedstocks like corn, sugarcane, grain and sugar beets from farmland, our second generation (advanced) bioethanol is derived from residues or non-food crops grown on marginal land unsuitable for food production.
Our bioethanol is derived from Norway Spruce, as a by-product of our cellulose production. This makes our lignocellulosic bioethanol a highly sustainable alternative to synthetic or other fermented ethanol.
To put things in perspective:
- 92% better climate footprint than synthetic ethanol
- Does not negatively impact the price or availability of food
Growing sustainability demands at both corporate and social levels are increasing the demand for environmentally friendly raw materials. Our bioethanol is the perfect solution for achieving a favourable sustainability profile.
Borregaard’s advanced bioethanol is the sustainable, eco-friendly alternative for your applications.
