The chemical industry is concerned with the isolation and processing of raw materials, both natural and synthetic, and subsequent conversion into other substances whose characteristics differ from the original ones.
BIOPOLIS, S.L. provides services and products for the two broad subsectors comprising this industry:
- Basic or commodity chemicals: basic raw materials are used and intermediate products are produced, which then serve as raw material for other industries.
- Chemical processing and transformation: raw materials are transformed to formulate marketable products. The fine or speciality chemical sector comprises numerous specialized industries (pharmaceuticals, fertilizers, pesticides, dyes etc.).
