Green chemicals


An essential partner in the development of plant chemistry and bioplastics, Tereos is helping to decrease the chemicals industry’s reliance on fossil resources, reduce its environmental footprint and make its processes cleaner.

Solid expertise in green chemistry

Tereos is renowned for its expertise in plant chemistry, which makes it possible to replace fossil carbon by plant-based carbon to produced biosourced materials.

Thanks to its agricultural shareholding, the Group enjoys easy access to biomass, the biodegradable portion of waste products and residues of biological origin, the use of which enables the production of a large number of chemical products.

Several ingredients derived from agricultural raw materials, such as potato starch, dextrose and liquid sorbitol, are used in the composition of biosourced plastic materials, e.g. polyurethanes, adhesives, coatings, detergents, etc.
