BIOSYNCAUCHO S.L. is a new technology-based company created to develop chemical products with high added value from renewable raw materials.
Its activity is based around technology protected by four patent families and that will make it possible to turn the problems of non-renewable raw materials, such as volatility, environmental impact or their depletion, into a business opportunity.
This technology provides a solution to the problem of obtaining 1,3-butadiene, a chemical compound whose best known use is the production of rubber for the manufacture of tyres, a market with a value exceeding 22,000 million dollars and which is expected to increase to 32,000 million dollars in 2018.
In the context of a market in which a shortage of 1,3-butadiene is anticipated, Biosyncaucho seeks the implementation of an alternative value chain based on the synthesis of this compound from renewable resources, thus providing economically viable and more ecological alternatives for tyre manufacturers (Bridgestone, Dunlop, Firestone, Goodyear, Pirelli, Michelin), suppliers of sugar (AB Sugar, ACOR,Sued/Nord Zucker, Cosan, MitrPhol etc.) or the chemical industry itself (Repsol,Shell, Basf, Exxon, Dow Chemical, Ube, etc.).
- Avoids the problems of fossil resources.
- Reduces dependence on raw materials.
- Economically viable.
- Prevents altering flow of materials before blending.
- Uses biohazard 1 microorganisms.
- Generates recoverable by-products for animal feed and industrial uses.
