Sustainable cellulose products from sugar beet processing

AkzoNobel and agro-industrial cooperative Royal Cosun have formed a new partnership to develop novel products from cellulose side streams resulting from sugar beet processing.

The partnership will combine Royal Cosun’s specialist knowledge in separating and purifying agricultural process side streams with AkzoNobel’s expertise in the chemical modification of cellulose.

As well as highlighting Royal Cosun’s focus on the bio-based economy, the partnership also underlines AkzoNobel’s Planet Possible agenda, which includes ongoing efforts to develop and introduce sustainable, bio-based products that contribute to a circular economy.
