FROM WOOD TO SOLVENT


Charcoal


Lambiotte & Cie started its activities in 1860 with forestry and sawmill exploitation, producing railway sleepers.  In a desire to increase the value of its wood waste production, the company adopted an innovative carbonization process to convert wood to charcoal.  One of the chemical by-products of this distillation technology was methanol.


Solvent - Acetals


From 1901, Lambiotte’s interest in chemicals grew with the production of formaldehyde from wood methanol.  By 1970, Lambiotte’s passion for chemistry led to the use of formaldehyde as a reagent in the production of  acetals and hemicetals, known as solvents.  Since then, the company has continued to develop its expertise in production technologies, making it a leader in the highly specialised field of acetals synthesis.
