Lambiotte & Cie. started its activities in 1860 with forestry and sawmill exploitation, producing railway sleepers. In a desire to increase the value of its wood waste production, the company adopted an innovative carbonization process to convert wood to charcoal. One of the chemical by-products of this distillation technology was methanol. From 1901, Lambiotte’s interest in chemicals grew with the production of formaldehyde from wood methanol. By 1970, Lambiotte’s passion for chemistry led to the use of formaldehyde as a reagent in the production of acetals and hemicetals. Since then, the company has continued to develop its expertise in production technologies, making it a leader in the highly specialised field of acetals synthesis.
We at Lambiotte are proud to offer a wide range of industrial acetals, manufactured with state-of-the-art equipment in a continuous process reaction.
