Sekab

Involvement in the project

SEKAB BioFuels & Chemicals is taking part in the chemistry development in WP4 (Real scale demonstration of the circular value chain). Sekab contributes with expertise in the design of process equipment, distillation techniques, DCS and operation of pilot plant. Furthermore SEKAB has long experience of ethanol as raw material and the problems that can occur due to different ethanol qualities refined into other chemistry products. SEKAB will provide ethanol as raw material to conduct pilot tests for the production of EtCl.
SEKAB is one of Europe’s leading ethanol players and we want to contribute to a future where the demand for fossil fuels and raw material is reduced. We do this by producing and importing ethanol which we refine to both biofuels and green chemicals. The ethanol produced by SEKAB is used in our various fuels and is also refined into green chemistry products that end up as products that we use in our everyday lives.

Windscreen washer fluid, vinegar, water-based paints, pharmaceuticals, perfumes, cleaning products, varnishes and inks are some examples of the end- results of green chemistry. All these products which are usually made from oil can with great benefit to the climate instead be produced from renewable ethanol.

SEKAB products are then refined by our customers and used in areas such as the textile industry, the manufacture of medicine, foodstuffs, paints, fuel, construction materials and hygiene products. The meaning of the biorefinery concept is to utilise as much as possible of the raw materials’ constituent parts and produce a variety of products, to make more out of the tree.

SEKAB has long-standing experience of the production and processing chemicals for the chemicals industry and end users and has moreover the capacity to produce them using renewable bioenergy according to the circular flow principle. Just how green the final chemical product will be depends on the choice of raw material – fossil ethanol or bioethanol.

The chemicals SEKAB imports and produce are used in various biofuels and refined into chemistry products. Examples of SEKAB produced products include acetaldehyde, ethyl acetate, acetic acid and various ethanol fuels. Examples of customers are Akzo Nobel, Perstorp AB and BASF.

SUSTAINABILITY
– Purely a question about resources now and in the future
The world’s population is growing rapidly, but the resources we need to share are not increasing with it. That’s why we do what we do – we provide industry and society with sustainable chemical products and biofuels.

WHAT WE’VE DONE
Ever since we became SEKAB, we have worked hard to get where we are today. Yesterday’s work with a focus on tomorrow has also been recognized and rewarded with “Sustainable Bioethanol Award” in Brussels.

WORK IN PROGRESS
Every day we produce bioethanol for automotives and chemical industries, as well as for a range of other actors. Not a day goes by without our efforts, even in our sustainability work.

OUR CHALLENGES
We are of course proud and excited about our sustainability efforts so far but it does not stop here. The results of our work also lie in how we move forward. In one way or another it affects us all in the end.
