The chemical industry is one of the world’s most polluting industries

The chemical industry is one of the world’s most polluting industries. It is responsible for 14% of global greenhouse gas emissions and 9% of energy consumption. This is partly due to the increasing exploitation of fossil fuel and palm oil, to meet the growing demand for fatty acids from agri-food, chemical and material industries.

Given the abundant volumes globally generated and the diversity of its chemical components, food waste is being employed as a raw material to produce fuels and chemicals.

At ChainCraft, we saw an opportunity to reduce the chemical industries impact and to leverage this surplus food waste.

ChainCraft supports the transition away from fossil fuel and palm oil, with circular chemicals made from food waste.
