about PHOTANOL

PHOTANOL started in 2012 with the vision to revolutionize the chemical industry and make it circular and responsible.

The chemical industry has a significant negative impact on nature and environment, as it is heavily dependent on fossil resources and one of the biggest industrial CO2 emitters on our planet.

PHOTANOL’s green mission: turning a problem into a solution by capturing emitted CO₂ to produce renewable chemicals while leaving fossil resources in the ground.

« BECAUSE CHANGE IS CREATED TOGETHER »

We want to revolutionize the chemical industry along the entire value chain, allowing stakeholders to drastically lower their overall footprint.

That’s why we work together with industry leaders such as Renolit as their trusted innovation partner. Together, we exchange knowledge and develop technologies to support our shared drive to actually make change happen. 

Furthermore, we work together with investment partners who share our green vision, invest in our R&D, and enable us to scale up production.
