Our objective is to valorise renewable biomasses into industrial applications in order to replace fossil oil by more environmental friendly materials. Once extracted, the biomass is physically and chemically transformed using green technologies in order to generate multiple new products with various properties. The core business of OLEOTEK is focused on lipids from renewable sources. Our explosion proof pilot plant allows us to scale up our research from the lab toward specifics industrial needs.

It is important for us to celebrate the IYC in 2011 so that people can understand the diversity of Chemistry.
