Bio-based polymers from chicory roots
HMF serves as a basic material for polyamide, polyester and so-called PEF-bottles.
ILUDEST Destillationsanlagen GmbH supplied for this project two of the corresponding pilot plants:
ILUDEST® AD - 20 ltr/h and FISCHER® LABODEST® 260/S for the adsorption/desorption and the distillation step.
In addition, we delivered individualized components and controllers for both the extraction and the reaction unit.
Please enjoy the exciting report (in German, but it is self-explaining) on this fascinating innovation, broadcasted on German TV (SWR channel).
