ChainCraft starts construction of first production plant
SHIFT porfolio company ChainCraft 
invests EUR 6 million in a production facility in the Port of Amsterdam to convert biobased organic waste streams into high value fatty acids. The end product can be used as an additive in feed, lubricants, paint, coatings and packing materials, providing a sustainable alternative to existing additives produced from palm oil or fossil oil. The realisation of the plant at this scale is unique in the world and represents a breakthrough in greening the chemical industry.
