Chemical building blocks (CBB) are made from renewable lignocellulosic biomass and provide drop-in alternatives to petroleum based CBB. These products are ready to be converted into various industrial products and everyday consumer goods enabling customers to achieve their sustainability targets. Improved carbon footprint and cost competitive pricing are just examples among the multiple benefits of UPM CBB offerings. The basis are biorefinery processes highly integrated into UPM’s Biofore platform which are currently under development. This is done in close collaboration with selected partners along the value chain. We are aiming at industrial scale operations within Chemical building blocks in the long-term.
