Bio Solutions

Bio Solutions encapsulates all the activities involved in bringing biological solutions to the development of sustainable resources. It captures the concept of bio fuels (bio crude, bio diesel, bioethanol), biomass for energy (wood pellets, non wood biological resources), bio based chemicals, bio plastics and composites. Bio Solutions are all this and more. It is about understanding the biological resource that underpins sustainability.

One of the key issues is to be able to develop bio products that utilise the particular characteristics of the biomass. Instead of developing production routes via fossil raw materials, more competitive, fast track routes based on the biomass chemistry are available.

Indufor has more than a decade of collective knowledge and experience in sustainable Bio Solutions.

  • We offer services along the bio value chain, from identifying, assessing and/or developing biomass resources to technology and market assessments, valuation, due diligence and M&A related services.
  • The core of our expertise lies in biological resources and forests in particular. We have more than 30 years of established knowledge and experience in sustainable forestry.
  • We help our clients to provide Bio Solutions to meet their sustainability goals.
