Reliability through experience
Bio-based Chemical Plants
Implementing Outsourced Technologies and beyond
From a technical point of view, almost all industrial materials made from fossil resources, respectively their building blocks, can be substituted by their bio-based counterparts.
Thanks to its deep knowledge of all unitary operations related to sugar and sugar fermentation processes, De Smet Engineers & Contractors is the ideal partner for assisting investors in developing and implementing bio-based chemical plants and bio-commodities production facilities. DSEC has already successfully built for international key players, betain and inulin production units based on their proprietary knowhow and developed 2G ethanol & 2G sugar projects using process from major technology providers.
Notable examples of bio-based chemicals include non food starch, cellulose fibres and cellulose derivatives, tall oils, fatty acids and fermentation products such as 2G ethanol.
As for its other sectors of activities, DSEC is able to execute Biochemical production projects under the form of full EPC contracts, being familiar with all aspects of the project’s implementation. DSEC not only is capable of developing the investor’s proprietary technologies but also all related process auxiliaries, civil works, steel structures, installation works, start-up and commissioning activities, including training of the client’s personnel. DSEC’s project design and construction management gives paramount importance to the respect of health and safety and environment norms as well as to technical efficiency and ease of operation. The monitoring of project cost, time schedule and technical performances is the essence of any EPCM or EPC commitment.
DSEC’s independence from equipment suppliers allows selecting the best possible technical solutions with a view of optimizing performances, energy recovery, maintenance and cost to the benefit of any project.
