About Us
The most committed and purpose-driven entrepreneurs in the bio-rewable chemicals industry (since 2001).

Long story short

It is one thing to develop a process that works in a laboratory environment, and quite another to bring together a team of people that can commercialise and sell the process, structure license and project agreements, design a massive plant in another country, build a global marketing structure for the products and make a profit in the process. The DalinYebo’s key personnel consist of the enlarged team who achieved all of that by bringing together and motivating a diverse team of professionals to overcome many challenges and equipping them to master further challenges that lie ahead. The core team has been in business together since the end of the 1990s. Besides receiving the awards below, the team’s achievements to date were based on the commercialisation of technology to make biobased chemicals.

  was nominated in 2005 and 2006 “Technology Top 100 Enterprise” and

  was awarded by the Deputy Minister of Science and Technology in 2006 “in recognition of achievement in developing the bioscience sector in South Africa”.

Innovative Projects

Some of our (award winning) innovations in the biomass space are Biomass.Market    (Local buying and selling of biomass), or Cobelec™   (An ag residue to electricity – and chemicals – business plan).

Research (and Development)

Biomass conversion into products that replace oil or coal derived materials is still at its infancy (in our opinion). Our small team has successfully managed R&D development processes in the biomass space, collaborating with industries, investors and academia. We have learnt from our mistakes and offer therefore more than just our expertise!
