Toray's Green Innovation

Creation of
Non-Petroleum
Materials

Toray has been pursuing R&D of membrane-assisted bioprocess that apply membrane separation technology for water treatment to the processes of sac- charification, fermentation, and purification, by fusing membrane separation technology, biotechnology, and organic synthesis technology. This enables sugar production from non-edible biomass, a dramatic improvement in fer- mentation efficiency, and a reduction in refining energy, and contributes to the realization of non-petroleum materials from non-edible biomass.
