Switching to use more bio-based carbon in the chemical industry is a part of the solution to cut our GHG emissions.

AFRY’s offering for the biochemicals industry spans the full project lifecycle, from strategic advisory services for the changing bio-based markets to complete engineering and project execution capabilities. Our consulting insight and proven expertise in bio-based feedstock handling, combined with thorough chemicals and petrochemicals competence, is a unique combination.

The global consumption of fossil-based materials has continued to globally grow, causing increasing environmental concerns. Bio-based raw materials are opening many possibilities towards more sustainable chemicals and end products derived from them.

Switching to use more bio-based carbon in the chemical industry is a part of the solution to cut our GHG emissions. A transition away from fossil-based feedstocks and creating circular material flows, will play a significant role in reaching the set climate targets. Today, only a fraction of global chemicals and plastics produced are based on renewable biomass carbon and there is a need and opportunity for a change.

AFRY offers a one-stop-shop for advisory, design, and project management services from early studies via EPCM projects to start-ups of biochemical CAPEX projects and long-term partnership for OPEX services for the plant life cycle. We have particularly strong offerings in due diligence of biochemical investments, having management consulting and world-class engineering and environmental services under the same roof.

As a technology independent consultant, we help our clients identify and choose the best possible alternatives and deliver a safe, sustainable and cost-effective end result. Our bio-based chemicals market insight and process expertise, supported by globally integrated engineering and project management tools, ensure effective project execution and plant operation.

We are a trusted and technology independent partner in delivering sustainable biochemical projects.
