Steps into the future
Some ambitions have already become reality and will have an even greater impact in the future. What about yours?
Biomethanol from sugar-beet pulp
Sugar-beet pulp is used to generate green gas. Green gas is processed by BioMCN into biomethanol, a basic raw material in the chemical sector.
Replace PVC in coco mats with starch
The backing of coco mats has always been made of PVC. Dynaplak in Veendam has managed to make backing of ‘engineered’ starch.
Fewer microplastics in our environment

Hemp in passenger vehicles
Hemp is grown and refined in the region. The fibres are processed into insulation material for passenger vehicles, amongst other things.
Grass fibre - raw material for the packaging industry
The paper and board industry is looking for renewable sources of fibres. Huhtamaki in Franeker is using grass fibres to produce egg cartons.
The first movable drawbridge in the world made of biocomposite
