What makes us different

Research and Development
highlights

Multidisciplinary team

The team spirit, individual and collective experience are the backbone of our organization, in which a multidisciplinary team made up of engineers, biologists, chemists, pharmacists and food technologists stands out. To all this, we must add a talent map made up of people highly trained to comply with standards/rules and processes. This technical training is accompanied by other competencies such as planning and organization, rigor, thoroughness, and results orientation.

Open innovation

At Tomsa Destil we firmly believe in the benefits of Open Innovation, and therefore we collaborate in different projects with the most prestigious international scientific and academic institutions, as well as expert entities in different fields, in order to have the most innovative technologies, the most cutting-edge knowledge, and everything that allows us to advance and accelerate the development of new products so that our customers are at the forefront of their respective markets.

Research with purpose

We aim to progressively contribute to the decarbonization of the industry, taking action based on research and innovation of our processes, services and technology, as well as sustainability throughout our production and execution chain.

Tomsa Destil R&D

Research focuses

At Tomsa Destil we know that change is now. Over the years, we have been developing different research focuses focused on improving the processes of the sector through efficiency, but above all their sustainability.

Ethanol 2G

Tomsa Destil is committed to the decarbonization of the environment through its research, contributions, and findings in the biofuels industry, with Ethanol 2G being one of the most innovative alternatives in the sector. This second-generation ethanol is obtained from lignocellulosic biomass from non-food waste materials from agricultural, forestry and industrial activities. We are currently focusing our research on the development of a clean and renewable technique capable of depolymerizing lignocellulose to make it fermentable, obtaining some advantages such as obtaining 2G Ethanol, in addition to the optimization of the production process.

Renewable hydrogen

Renewable hydrogen is one of Tomsa Destil's research focuses, being of special interest as H2 production from ethanol is highly feasible, because this alcohol can be produced from biomass and/or forest residues. Some of the relevant advantages of reformed ethanol are its base, being a renewable alcohol and easy to store, in addition to favoring the transport of H2 through chemical storage in liquids, which means that H2 could be produced in the vehicle that consumes it, from ethanol, avoiding the cost of storing H2.
