Lifesciences@Work : We help scientists build their business

ChainCraft

Without subsidies, the production of biogas or compost from organic waste is currently a non-profitable business. Waste processing and agro-food companies are therefore actively looking for new valorisation technologies.

ChainCraft offers a technological solution to the waste and agro-food industries to produce biochemicals. With our robust technology, waste companies can increase their profit sixfold. Also, they will be able to serve the larger and fast- growing market for chemicals from renewable resources, the so-called biochemicals.

ChainCraft out-licenses its patented fermentation technology to enable waste processors to convert their organic waste into biochemicals. The specific biochemicals, Medium Chain Fatty Acids, can currently not be supplied in a sustainable and cost-effective way.

Pilot projects are being set up with leading waste management and agrofood companies to develop our technology at pilot scale. Strategic partners from the chemical industry will be involved for R&D purposes with a view to the production of e.g. plastics, coatings or polymers from the biochemicals produced with our technology.

ChainCraft has raised a Series A investment from Horizon3 and Dutch Greentech Fund (Rabobank). The management team of ChainCraft has experience in fermentation technologies and the waste management industry and is supported by a strong advisory and scientific board with experience in technology upscaling and the chemical industry.
