Biochemicals

Biochemicals produced from renewable raw materials meet a global need for innovative and sustainable alternatives to fossil-based chemicals. Growing populations and the increased consumption that accompanies greater wealth, combined with oil price volatility, create an increasing need for innovative alternatives to conventional petrochemical routes.

Plantrose technology enables the production of sustainable biochemicals. Sugars from renewable sources are often the starting point in the production of biochemicals. First generation sugar based biochemicals are most common. However they are produced from food based raw materials such as corn, wheat, soy, and sugarcane. With the advent of affordable second generation sugar based biochemicals, bioindustry can accelerate the shift towards more sustainable alternatives to oil-based chemistry. Renmatix enables the shift to low cost, high volume, cellulosic sugars – the building blocks for biochemicals and the starting point for plantrochemicals.

Many different downstream technologies now lend themselves to the use of bio-based materials to create alternatives to what are currently sourced via petroleum-based chemicals. Opening those doors, with affordable intermediaries and bio-based feedstocks like Plantro sugars and Omno polymers - that’s the space we live in here at Renmatix.
