Using wood waste to produce biochemicals: green chemistry for a green future


Reducing our reliance on fossil fuels is essential in order to tackle the climate crisis, but this involves more than just increasing the share of renewable energy.

Reliable alternatives need to be found for petroleum-based products, which is what chemical processing company Lixea is doing by turning wood waste into biochemicals, bioplastics, and biofuels. I spoke to Florence Gschwend, CEO and Co-founder of Lixea, about the new process and the company’s journey from spin-out to building a pilot facility.
