In China, Chempolis Ltd and Henan Yinge Industrial Investment have established a joint venture in Luohe, Henan province, to construct a biorefinery producing 160 000 tons of non-wood papermaking fibres and biochemicals.

The biorefinery will utilize the Chempolis formicofib technology using wheat straw as raw material. Total project investment will be $40 million, of which Chemopolis will invest 25 percent. Chempolis’ formicofib converts non-wood raw materials into papermaking fibre for paper and board, packaging, and hygiene products; while formicobio processes non-food raw materials into cellulosic ethanol.
