Chempolis in brief

Chempolis is a renowned provider of groundbreaking biorefining technologies for energy, biofuel, oil, paper and chemical industries and companies. Chempolis’ formico®-technologies turn biomass into high-quality products profitably and responsibly. Our technologies offer a 30 percent better cash flow and a significantly shorter payback period than competition.

Chempolis’ biorefining processes are designed to minimize environmental impacts and maximize social benefits. Our green reach is global. We are familiar with the potential of spruce and pine woods of Finland as well as with the bamboo forests of India and we are able to turn residues to revenues.

Chempolis’ technologies enable bioethanol, high-quality pulps like dissolving pulp, cellulosic sugars, biochemicals and sulfur-free lignin to be produced sustainably from all lignocellulosic raw materials. Our processes are fitted to use non-wood and non-food biomasses such as straw, bagasse, corn stover, EFB and bamboo but also hardwood and softwood can be used.

Chempolis’ business model is to license biorefining technologies but our expertise also covers conceptual, process and plant engineering. Our dedication to create clean and efficient solutions has resulted in more than 100 granted patents.

Our concept was invented and tested at the state of the art in-house biorefinery we designed, built and run in Oulu, Finland. The refinery, located 200 kilometers south of the Arctic Circle, functions as Chempolis’ main hub of innovation where we also offer full-scale testing and industrial scale-up services for our clients and partners. These expert services are offered under OPEN, the Oulu Piloting Enterprise. The experimental work entails services from laboratory level all the way to piloting and pre-commercial scale phases.

In addition to Finland, Chempolis operates in India through the subsidiary company of Chempolis India Private Limited.
