DalinYebo (Xhosa): Wealth Creation

Innovative Minds: Converting Biomass to Chemicals and Energy

WHAT we DO


We provide practical solutions that add value to lignocellulosic biomass (pulp mill liquor, cellulosic hydrolysate, sugarcane bagasse, sunflower husks, oat hulls, corncobs, etc.).

Technology

DalinYebo is an independent group of companies that provide proprietary knowhow on the manufacture of furfural, globally. We develop and implement projects using fit-for-purpose biomass-processing technologies and offer complete business solutions for all aspects of the entire “biomass to market” value chain (from the field to the customer).

More 

Markets

DalinYebo Trading and Development (Pty) Ltd provides our business developments with the marketing and sales organisation for their furfural and furfural by-products.

More 

Knowhow

Since 1998, we have been active in developing businesses that are based on the conversion of biomass to products and energy that are alternatives to oil or coal derived materials. We have since then acquired vast amounts of knowhow.

Connecting The Dots

Since 2001

DalinYebo has developed and commercialised technology for the production of furfural from a variety of feedstock. Our team is well experienced in connecting the many “dots” to valorise biomass.

Why we DO it


There are limitless business opportunities for everybody to participate in the bioeconomy, especially related to lignocellulosic biomass, which is the only sufficiently prevalent sustainable resource for conversion into electricity, chemicals, plastics and fuels, is the most abundant organic material in Africa …

and on earth. There is biomass on all continents, i.e. it is not restricted to certain regions or countries.

Reason one

Biomass is composed of four (five) major components: cellulose, hemicellulose, (sugars,) lignin and water.

Biomass is a feedstock for chemicals and energy. It is organic material that has stored sunlight in the form of chemical energy and at the same time converted CO2 into oxygen. 

Reason two

Biomass is readily available already as a residue of agricultural (food) production or from forestry. Biomass presents a local business opportunity.

Our business is to convert it into chemicals and/or energy/electricity.

Still not convinced? Here is another one:

Reason three

Oil or coal is fossilised biomass. So why not use it fresh?
