About Processum

We are experts in biorefinery development. In our unique research environment, we can test new ideas and products all the way from laboratory to demo scale. Therefor we are a link between research and commercialization. Processum is also the hub of an innovation platform that spans both borders and industries, nationally and internationally.

Our society is facing challenges that require new sustainable products and solutions. A part of that work is to switch from what is today fossil-based to fossil-free products made from renewable resources. This is exactly what Processum is working on, the transition to fossil-free alternatives. In our unique research environment, we can test new ideas and products all the way from laboratory- to demo scale and in this way, we are a link between research and commercialization.

Processum is an industry-oriented and flexible research and innovation partner in the biorefinery area. Processum is also the hub of an innovation platform that spans over both borders and industries, nationally and internationally. Through our large network, we can bring entrepreneurs with an established business, social actors and academia together. As a subsidiary of RISE, Processum is part of several research areas, test beds and demonstration environments. This means that together with our 2800 colleagues we can answer, highlight and solve problems with the help of expertise from several different areas, and thus accelerate the innovation process.

Expert in biorefinery

A biorefinery consists of several new processes and solutions that together form a complete solution for the conversion of biomass into green products, which have previously been fossil-based. This is an area that requires broad collaboration and access to many different specialist competencies. Processum's areas of expertise in biorefinery are Biotechnology, Organic Chemistry, Residual Materials, Energy, and Patents. At Processum, specialists work who have both specific competence in their subject area, as well as knowledge to project manage development projects and business development.

Today's residual product - tomorrow's new products

An important key to achieving the global climate goals is to find new values in what has previously been residual products. At Processum, we work, among other things, to take advantage of the residual streams that are formed in the process industry. We are looking at how we can refine them to create new value chains around the raw material that is already available. By finding use for residual material, what may previously have been a waste problem can now instead become a source of revenue, at the same time as it has a positive impact on our environment. With our expertise and our test and demo environment, we can, on behalf of individual parties, carry out development projects in a neutral and independent manner or produce substances for further development.

Processum Bioeconomy Cluster

RISE Research Institutes of Sweden AB owns 60 % of RISE Processum AB. Processum Bioeconomy Cluster currently has 20 member companies and owns 40% of RISE Processum AB. Processum's ownership structure connects to Sweden's national research institute with a strong regional innovation platform. Processum Bioeconomy Cluster aims to safeguard and pursue the member companies' interests in Processum and its operations.
