Commercialization of Renewable Technologies

To tackle climate change, reduce solid waste and improve air and water quality, we must phase out current practices and switch to more sustainable solutions, many of which simply do not exist today. These new solutions, also known as renewable technology, cleantech, greentech and sustainable tech, are a hot area for investment, but face many…

Biomass to Chemicals

Biochemicals are products derived from renewable biological sources such as plants, animals or their wastes. There are very large number of possible products that can be made using variety of feedstocks and reaction pathways. Most familiar examples include ethanol produced by fermentation, citric acid (long history) and propylene glycol (a newly introduced bio product). Most…

Formulation Chemistry for Plant-Derived Materials in New Products

In the global bio-economy, the renewable materials supply chain usually starts with raw materials derived via extraction from plant matter, or from the fermentation of functional plant matter. The materials made via these routes generally fall into two categories, namely: Commercially available and chemically identical to materials made from petrochemicals or animal sources (such as…
