Virtual opening at new distillation plant

Toine Janssen, CEO of Isobionics, has formally opened the new Isobionics distillation plant at Brightlands Chemelot Campus in Geleen, Netherlands.

Steffen Götz, Head of BASF's Aroma Ingredients business, Jurgen Hoekstra, Managing Director BASF Nederland, and Bert Kip, CEO of Brightlands Chemelot Campus, joined the event virtually.

The Isobionics approach to producing natural fragrance and flavour ingredients is unique. The company´s proprietary technology is based on fermentation, a traditional technique well known from processes such as brewing beer and baking bread. In this method, a substance is converted into a target product with the help of microorganisms such as bacteria or fungi. This process is based on renewable raw materials. Distillation is the last production step, yielding natural ingredients.

Isobionics recently launched Isobionics Santalol. The in-house manufacturing process makes the product unique. It is produced on a biotechnological basis from renewable raw materials: The starting material for the fermentation process is corn starch, which is obtained from corn grown in Europe. The product is 100 percent free from the endangered sandalwood tree, which is on the Red List of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). Isobionics Santalol is a good alternative to the original sandalwood oil and brings warmth and volume to every fragrance creation, while at the same time conserving natural resources.
