ChainCraft is a leading scale-up company in the production and marketing of sustainable medium chain fatty acids. These fatty acids are produced from organic waste via a proprietary fermentation process and can be used in existing and new applications in a.o. animal feed, lubricants, plasticizers, herbicides and flavours and fragrances. The main products are the C4, C5 and C6 fatty acids (butyric, valeric and caproic acid). Since 2019 a commercial demonstration plant is operational which has an annual production capacity of up to 2.000 tonnes of fatty acids. ChainCraft is honoured to be a part of the Industrial Advisory Board of W-BioCat and is excited for the development of enzymes capable to produce aldehydes or alcohols for our sustainable fatty acids.
