This is how it works

Swedish Chemical and Clean Technology Company

We want to contribute to a future where the demand for fossil fuels and raw material is reduced. We do this by producing and importing ethanol which we refine to both biofuels and green chemicals, and by developing commercial technology to produce bioethanol.

In Örnsköldsvik, in the midst of the northern forests, lies the cradle of the Swedish chemical industry. This is where Sekab has its roots. The first drops of ethanol were produced in this area as early as in 1909 and it is with over one hundred years of combined experience we now move on to the next generation of sustainable bioethanol and innovative solutions in green chemistry.
