AFYREN and Südzucker team on biorefinery using sugar beet co-products

March 25, 2021 |

In France, AFYREN and Südzucker have reached an unprecedented long-term agreement on the supply of sugar beet co-products as feedstock for AFYREN NEOXY, the zero-waste, low-carbon biorefinery that will begin producing seven 100% biobased organic acids at industrial scale in early 2022.

The partnership is in accordance with both companies’ sustainability strategies. Using these co-products to produce bio-based organic acids provides a high level of revalorization and does not affect the food chain.

Südzucker will provide the biorefinery’s supply of sugar beet co-products. The agreement to upcycle these co-products into high-value chemicals that are usually made from petroleum derivatives fits into its commitment to conduct business in a manner that utilizes resources sustainably and the aim of Südzucker to be climate neutral by 2050.
