OPTISOCHEM OPTimized conversion of residual wheat straw to bio-ISObutene for bio based CHEMicals

These compounds, oligomers (DIB, TIB, TeIB) and polyisobutylenes (PIBs) are currently used in a wide range of applications such as lubricants, adhesives, sealants, flavors & fragrances and substituted phenols. This large market is today supplied entirely by products derived from fossil-based isobutene. Products derived from bio-based IBN, using the same process as fossil-based IBN, and with at least as good performances, would provide a renewable supply.
OPTISOCHEM includes the development & up-scaling of bio-IBN production from wheat straw, followed by the production and validation at relevant scale -representative of commercial, established processes- of the bio-based derivatives.
