Bio-based Chemicals

DSEC did gain in the last years a broad experience in the field of bio-based chemicals from various biomass sources.

Thanks to its deep knowledge of all unitary operations and fermentation processes, De Smet Engineers & Contractors (DSEC) is the ideal partner for scaling-up processes from start-up’s, investors or international key players.

Working in close collaboration with technology platforms where processes are tested from lab to demo scale, DSEC is able to design and implement new facilities related to bio-refineries, but also all related process auxiliaries and utilities (Balance Of Plant – BoP).

DSEC has and is currently involved in various bio-chemicals plants projects, in studies or execution phases, including among others, Propanediol (PDO), glycerol valorization, Ethyl Acetate or Cyrene.

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.
