The role of chemistry in the transformation strategy

Chemistry is part of our transformation strategy through products obtained from renewable sources and recycling plastics, developed through an ongoing commitment to research and development. Even in this sector, sustainability is confirmed as a strategic driver that we implement throughout the entire value chain and considering the entire life cycle of our range of solutions.

The company we operate with in the sector is Versalis , the largest in the sector in Italy, which relies on a system of production plants and a global business network. In addition to the circular chemistry, Versalis has several production lines in the field of petrolchemistry, namely in basic chemistry, in the production of intermediates for other industrial cycles and in the formulation of plastics and rubbers (polyethylene, styrenics and elastomers) for a wide variety of uses.

Disinfectants and biofuels from forestry waste

At the Crescentino plant, we are using the Proesa® system, a proprietary technology that obtains sustainable bioethanol from biomass composed of wood and cellulose derived from forestry processes.  Using special enzymes, biomass is first converted into second-generation sugars and, through a fermentation process, transformed into advanced ethanol, which is used as biofuel to formulate petrol with a renewable component.  In addition to bioethanol, the process is capable of producing chemical intermediates for other processes, e.g. for the production of disinfectants from the Invix® line. 

Circular chemistry: the topic is back for Net Zero

Our commitment to chemistry from renewable sources and the development of recycling technologies is geared towards sustainability.
