Sidel: Researching New Polymers

Through its BioHub programme, which is aimed at deploying agrochemistry to upgrade agricultural resources, Sidel is engaged in researching and developing the processes, applications and products of tomorrow. The programme, initiated by the French Agency for Industrial Innovation (AII) and headed by the company Roquette Frères, provides for the commissioning of a biorefinery for transforming 1.3 million t/a of grain into various bioproducts, such as monomers and polymers, for specialty and commodity plastics. These are all derivatives which hitherto have been produced from crude oil. This process technology should lead to the production of new materials, especially for the food-packaging markets.

Sidel is a manufacturer of packaging solutions and devices for liquid foods and will be bringing to bear its expertise in the field of transforming raw materials and the development of novel, food-contact-approved plastics packaging.

With a projected lifetime of seven years and a budget of EUR 98 million, the programme seeks to draw on the synergy of chemists, public laboratories, relevant competition centres and industrial entrepreneurs.
