The Association Chimie du Végétal joins the French Fab

Start
Recognizing itself in the values carried by this movement, the Association Chimie du Végétal (ACDV) joins the French Fab. It undertakes to bring this approach to its members and to support them.
 
 » Lhe French Fab embodies the refoundation of French industry. An innovative, exporting industry, open to the evolutions brought by digital, new technologies and the green economy* " .
Bpifrance therefore initiated a strong dynamic with the launch of the French Fab; a dynamic whose values are in line with those of the ACDV over the last 10 years: excellence, innovation, sustainability. It is also a way of playing as a team in which the manufacturers of the bio-based materials and products sector who are members of the ACDV can fully participate. In short, it's a matter of course!
 
To help raise the profile of French know-how, the ACDV is joining the ranks of the network of companies currently being set up,  "It is the "beating heart of the economy and employment in the territories.
 
Some examples of innovations in bio-based materials :

The Adidas Ball Telstar 18which will be used this summer for the Football World Cup, is made of bio-based rubber! This was recently announced by its supplier.
 
BASF France, an ACDV member, received the Pierre Potier Prize 2017 for the development, in collaboration with the Capsul'in company, of a biosourced resin that can be transformed into coffee capsules that are certified compostable and perfectly compatible with Nespresso machines.
 
The young Auvergne-based company, a pioneer in the field of bioplasturgy, wins the Awards Europa Bio of Europe's most innovative SME in the industrial biotechnology category.

This distinction within the framework of the Cop 23 comes after a first exhibition at the Cop 21 in Paris, and the Pierre Potier Foundation prize in 2016.
 
Arbiom has just launched Sylchem. The objective of this program is to convert forest raw material into chemical compounds of interest. In particular, it makes it possible to obtain biosourced materials: succinic acid, lactic acid, propylene glycol, polyols, etc.
