France| Advanced Botanicals
At Evonik we are optimizing our processes to avoid depletion of natural resources. With Evonik Advanced Botanicals, for example, we have developed a process for cultivating plant biomass under laboratory conditions to recover beneficial extracts and to achieve very high yield of complex and unique phytochemistry. The technology is based on the plants’ ability to produce a broad spectrum of secondary metabolites when required under specific stresses, enabling the production of plant extracts with a high concentration of the desired bioactive substances. Through this process we are working to achieve our sustainability ambitions while adding value for our customers.
