Chemical Plant

– the chemical plant is the heart of our business

Recycling Policy

In Sekab’s chemical plant, we produce acetaldehyde, ethyl acetate and acetic acid. We refine and convert ethanol into biofuels and ethanol-based chemical products. We work in catalytic processes in which the ethanol raw materials react highly effectively, the largest by-product being ordinary water.

We work according to the Ecocycle Principle:

  1. Production takes place with as little toxicological effects as possible and minimised climate impact.
  2. In our production, our ambition is always to not expose nature to systematic concentration increases.
  3. Our products are handled in such a way that we minimise toxicological effects and minimise climate impact.

Advanced purification in a closed-loop system

Biological Treatment

Sekab has very advanced gas purification in its production lines. The outgoing process water is treated in an anaerobic (oxygen-free) water purification process which is highly efficient – after purification, the water has a status that is close to completely unaffected natural water.

In the chemical plant we can produce Acetaldehyde, Ethyl Acetate and Acetic Acid from ethanol raw materials. The ethanol can be biological and fossil-free or fossil. The choice is dependent on the customer’s wishes and the price of ethanol.

Green raw materials for the sake of the climate

In our chemical plant, we can produce green products from renewable raw materials in a process that is run on green bioenergy. This provides a product with very low emissions of climate impacting carbon dioxide with respect to the entire chain.

SEKAB can also supply products manufactured from second-generation cellulosic ethanol as the raw material. In this way, we keep processes and products as climate neutral as is at all possible.

Ethanol as a raw material

We refine ethanol into biofuels and chemicals. We develop biorefinery technology for new sustainable product possibilities based on cellulose raw materials.
