Scotland’s first bio-refinery plant opens in Glenrothes, Fife

Cellucomp has now setup shop to produce its first product, "Curran", at its premises in the Fife Food and Business Centre in Glenrothes.

Curran is Gaelic for carrot, and is a registered trademark. It is an industrial additive produced from the waste of sugar beet and other root vegetables to improve the durability of paint and other coatings.

It also has thickening capabilities with possible applications for other industries including paper and packaging, personal care, home care, concrete, pharmaceuticals and drilling fluids.

The CelluComp initiative aims to establish Scotland as a world leader in a sector estimated to be worth almost £200 million to the Scottish economy with a projected turnover of £900m by 2025.
