SUSTAINABLE AND GREEN CHEMISTRY
SOGIS, green chemistry for more than 50 years
New outlooks in Green Chemistry
SOGIS is a full-fledged oleochemical biorefinery. We develop, produce and sell industrial chemical products and we are strongly local rooted. Born in the early 1960s, in the midst of the economic boom, when meat consumption in Italy started growing, we are located in Cremona area, full of cattle breeding and featured by important agri-food enterprises. An ideal place for seizing the opportunity of taking advantage of exceeding fat coming from the food sector, got from slaughterhouses residues processing, on the example of Northern Europe.
The raw material, coming from a renewable source cheaper than vegetable oils, is turned into highly biodegradable chemical products, giving rise to a niche market, accomplishing, in a sustainable way, the local agri-food supply chain.
Safety in food supply chain during the time has become more and more relevant. A lot has been done in the EU to secure that farm livestock are healthy and properly nourished. EU legislation has become more and more restrictive; laws ruling Dioxine, Pesticides, Aflatoxines, use of GMOs, presence of heavy metals and many others have been issued. SO.G.I.S. produces additives for animal feeding according to GMP + Standard, a stringent and reliable one, supplying customers with safe products complying with EU laws.
SO.G.I.S. regularly carries out O- LCA analyses and is intentioned to keep products and Organization sustainability under control.
We have recently attained the ISCC sustainability certification for Glycerol and we are willing to broaden the same type of certification to all of our products.
Working this way, SOGIS implements a deeply locally rooted supply chain, by applying an innovative know how and using a byproduct, the slaughterhouse residues, that, in case not employed, could outcome in environmental and health problems.
The sustainable green chemistry principle is precisely to be able to turn poor resources, as processing wastes, into added value products, creating local jobs.
