History[edit]

Tornesch has a place in biochemical history from the wood saccharification[2] process developed by Scholler,[3] also known at the Scholler-Tornesch process. The first factory to use the process was built in Tornesch. This early work was part of the development of biofuel such as cellulosic ethanol.
