Cosun Biobased Products is part of Royal Cosun
Who are we?
Cosun Biobased Products is part of Royal Cosun with our head office in the Netherlands. We are well placed to take advantage of the upcoming biobased economy with a consistent strategy and the development of innovative biobased chemicals and materials from renewable, vegetable resources.

We serve markets such as home & personal care, paints & coatings, oil & gas, food, construction, water treatment and the chemical industry.

Cosun is backward integrated and has direct access to large quantities of feedstock. This enables Cosun to provide security of supply to its customers.


Our biobased solutions
The development of biobased solutions is an ongoing process.  Our present portfolio of products includes:

•    Betafib ® microcellulosic fibers – structuring of liquids;
•    Carboxyline ® carboxymethyl inulin – scale inhibition;
•    CATIN ® cationic inulin – surface modification;
•    Betawell ® L-arabinose – sucrase inhibition;
•    Betawell ® galacturonic acid – pH control and chelation;
•    Betawell ® galactaric acid – pH control and chelation;
•    Betabind® powdered sugar beet pulp – water binding;
•    Biobased chemical building blocks for new chemical products and polymers.

Besides that, we have various innovative products under development with new interesting functionalities.


Our role in the biobased economy
The biobased economy is unstoppable and will affect the current supply chains and business structures. Royal Cosun is committed to the biobased economy and therefore invested in an integrated and cost-effective cascading biorefinery to refine sugar beet pulp and isolate high value components. The overall objective is to establish new value chains based on microcellulose fibers, L-Arabinose and galacturonic acid in high value markets. These new products are an extension of Cosun’s current portfolio of available biobased products such as carboxymethyl inulin, cationic inulin and bio-methane.

We dedicate ourselves to the biobased economy and generate focus, synergy and critical mass. This enables the successful development of technology and business. This is achieved by ensuring optimal value creation is realised, no waste is produced (closed loops) and the lowest energy input is achieved.

For Cosun, to be a successful player in the biobased economy, several strategic aspects are of importance among which:

•    Focus on high value products and 100% utilization of raw materials;
•    Continuous investment in research and development;
•    Strategic partnerships and co-development throughout the
    whole value chain.
