Copy of Biochemicals

Not only fuels, but also paints, cosmetics, and several active principals used in medicine are fossil-based. Therefore, in the transition towards a more sustainable, circular economy, it is necessary to obtain these or similar molecules from renewable feedstocks, called biochemicals. This includes not only finding alternatives in nature, but also performing chemical and biochemical reactions using bio-based resources to obtain the desired molecules.
