What Our Process Starts With

Agricultural waste refers to organic materials derived from plants and animals, typically considered as byproducts in various agricultural processes. These materials, including corn fiber, switchgrass, pecan shells, and rice hulls, contain stored energy from the sun, harnessed during photosynthesis. Our technology is uniquely designed to handle a diverse range of these agricultural waste sources, enabling remarkable adaptability. By converting such agricultural waste materials into valuable products, we not only reduce waste but also divert substantial organic material away from landfills, making a significant contribution to a more sustainable future.

How Our Process Works

Our patented technology offers a groundbreaking pathway to process agricultural waste, transforming it into essential building block chemicals that can be utilized by fuel producers for the production of Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAFs). This innovative solution serves as a bolt-on technology, drastically reducing processing times for fuel producers by an impressive 80%. Beyond its pivotal role in SAF production, our technology exhibits versatility with applications across various industries. It can be harnessed to convert agricultural waste into a range of valuable chemicals, catering to diverse manufacturing and production needs. This multi-faceted capability positions our technology as a sustainable and economically efficient solution, aligning with the growing demand for eco-friendly practices in today's world.

What Makes Our Technology Different

In contrast to traditional methods, our technology offers a streamlined, single-step process, simplifying operations significantly. One of our standout advantages is the extensive range of feedstock options we provide to oil refineries, enhancing their flexibility and resource utilization. Furthermore, our technology is inherently more energy-efficient, operating at lower temperatures and pressures, leading to reduced energy consumption and environmental impact. Unlike conventional methods, we prioritize safety and environmental friendliness, as our process is entirely nontoxic, free from harsh acids commonly used in traditional approaches. Speed is another area where we shine, with the capability to produce intermediates up to 80% faster than conventional methods. These advantages collectively position our technology as a game-changer in the industry, fostering efficiency, sustainability, and innovation.

Applications of Our Building Block Chemicals

Our technology, converting agricultural waste into valuable chemicals, has a wide array of applications beyond its use in sustainable aviation fuels (SAFs). One prominent application is in the production of biofuels, where our process streamlines and accelerates the conversion of agricultural waste into biofuels, offering a more sustainable alternative to traditional methods. Additionally, our technology can be applied in the production of bioplastics, a rapidly growing sector seeking environmentally friendly materials for various industries. The chemical building blocks we produce are used in the creation of these biodegradable plastics.
