Photanol BV, which develops and produces circular carbon chemicals and Renolit SE, a globally active specialist for high-quality polymer films, sheets and other polymer solutions, have formed a strategic partnership to develop polymers by using CO2 absorbed from the air in a direct, fully circular and CO2 -neutral conversion process without the usage of (fossil) oil and gas.


As such, this innovative process is an optimal solution to contribute to the reduction of global warming while still enjoying the benefits of virgin high performance polymers.

The process uses light and CO2 as raw material and produces so called monomers (building blocks for polymers) by photosynthesis of cyanobacteria while exhausting oxygen.


“This partnership is bringing a long series of benefits to our healthcare customers and patients, amongst which fully sustainable raw materials, better quality of medical devices due to higher purity of the raw materials and a secured supply-chain,” said Thomas Sampers, Renolit Board member and General Manager Healthcare.


“We are excited to have an experienced partner on our side for the development of circular polymers which will have a huge impact on a global scale. Teaming up with RENOLIT helps us to bring this fascinating disruptive technology to many markets at competitive cost while taking care of the planet” said Veronique de Bruijn, CEO of Photanol.
