Afyren commissions biochemical facility
Greentech firm Afyren has announced the industrial commissioning of its Afyren Neoxy plant on schedule and within budget. The plant at Carling Saint-Avold in eastern France began construction in 2H 2020. It is the first industrial-scale factory for the production of biobased carboxylic acids from sugar beet co-products.
Afyren said in late March that all the equipment has been delivered and the start-up process is under way. Tests have since begun and the company will launch the production of seven biobased organic acids, with the objective of delivering the first batches during 2022.
