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 saccharification, 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 fermentation efficiency, and a reduction in refining energy, and contributes to the realization of non-petroleum materials from non-edible biomass.
