Sustainable thermochemical upcycling of biomass byproducts and waste for biopolyol production

About Us

Our company specialises in breakthrough, patent-pending biopolyol production technologies and products.

Our Goal

Produce truly sustainable, cost-effective and high-quality biopolyols, enabling syntheses of polyurethanes high in renewable carbon content.

Our Technologies

Our technologies match our strategy to offer tailored end-user products of outstanding engineering at competitive prices.

Our Vision

Become a significant international manufacturer and supplier of highly-sustainable biopolyols.

Our motivation

Driven by the ongoing global environemntal detriment and climate crisis exascerbated by fossil resource extraction and high levels of green house gas emissions.

Change is needed

Uncertainties in crude oil reserves and associated environmental hazards incentivise the creation of a green economy.


Dependence on fossil resources

Current polyurethane markets are still dominated by petroleum-based polyols.


Unsustainable alternatives

Commercial biopolyols are food competitive or use virgin feedstocks and chemicals.


Biopolyols – a raw material for polyurethane synthesis

As a polymer material, polyurethane (PU/PUR) is broadly used for manufacturing thermally insulated construction panels, domestic use construction filler foams and plastics, commercial and domestic wood adhesives, with industrial applicability in buildings, furniture and more. The growing need for polyols (a key raw material for producing polyurethane) has already created a global, high-volume market demand of 11 megatonnes (Mt) annually.

BioPU wood adhesives

Biopolyurethane adhesives made with Crudyol biopolyol exhibit good bonding and tensile strength properties.

Construction filler foams

Polyurethane based rigid foams can be used for insulation or utilised as a gap-filling adhesive to fix, fill and seal against noise, cold, and drafts.

Cast hard biopolyurethane plastics

Biopolyurethane can be cast to manufacture custom-tailored products featuring high wear resistance and low friction.

Crudyol: A Revolutionary Biopolyol Solution

Project title: Development and validation of an innovative small-scale prototype biopolyol plant via direct chemical upcycling of biomass byproducts
Description: Our validated and patent-pending chemical production process, based on direct chemical upcycling and valorisation, that incorporates multiple industrial by-product and waste biomass streams as raw materials to produce truly sustainable, cost-effective and high-quality biopolyols.

Highly sustainable

Crudyol expands the range of high-value products via utilising sustainable feedstocks, resulting in highly sustainable biopolyols.
