In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...
U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack visits Renmatix for commissioning of plant-to-sugar BioFlex Conversion Unit
Building on success in hardwood, Philadelphia-based Renmatix adds on-site capability to convert multiple local and international feedstocks to cellulosic sugar

KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa., Jan. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Renmatix, the leading manufacturer of cellulosic sugars for biobased chemical and fuel markets, welcomed Secretary Tom Vilsack, leader of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), for the commissioning of the company's BioFlex Conversion Unit, a multiple-feedstock processing facility at the company's King of Prussia headquarters.

Vilsack toured Renmatix's world-class technical center and joined Renmatix CEO, Mike Hamilton, in formal remarks on the industry's recent advancements in developing next-generation renewable energy and high-value biobased products, and Renmatix's role in producing the low-cost intermediates critical in the pivot from petro-sourced to bio-based alternatives.

"Rural America holds tremendous promise today, thanks in large part to innovation taking place in the biobased economy. Since 2009, USDA has made tremendous investments in the research necessary to develop the next generation of biobased products. Such research is validated when companies like Renmatix can convert locally relevant feedstocks into the very low-cost sugar intermediates demanded by global fuel and chemical markets," said Vilsack. "I applaud the Renmatix team for creating more than 50 sustainable, green collar jobs in Pennsylvania and strengthening the future of a biobased economy for southeast Pennsylvania."

The new BioFlex Conversion Unit (BCU) at Renmatix's Pennsylvania facility builds on the company's success with hardwood biomass at its flagship facility in Georgia and will test and convert a range of non-food plant materials through its water-based Plantrose process. In addition to hardwood, the company will begin conversion of four locally available feedstocks including: perennial grasses, agricultural residues, softwoods and waste streams. The cellulosic sugars produced on-site via the BCU will support downstream fuel and chemical strategic partners and data analysis at the company's technical center, which was opened in September 2012.

"Having Secretary Vilsack join us to mark the next phase in diversifying Renmatix's technology across multiple forms of biomass is a great honor. His visit reflects our complementary interests in agriculture and chemistry, and highlights a new wave of 'farmistry' that is creating value for many types of locally grown, advantaged biomass. This new production facility will expand the relevance of the Plantrose process by helping to evaluate renewable feedstocks that are abundantly available in a variety of climates and geographies worldwide," said Renmatix CEO Mike Hamilton. "The sugars produced at this site will continue to enable development of the emerging bioeconomy and will be shared with key industry collaborators and Fortune 50 downstream partners in our active sampling program."

About Renmatix
Renmatix is the leading manufacturer of cellulosic sugar, an enabling feedstock for petroleum alternatives used in the global biochemical and biofuels markets. The company's proprietary Plantrose™ process challenges conventional sugar economics by cheaply converting cellulosic biomass – from wood waste to agricultural residue – into useful, cost-effective sugars. Renmatix's supercritical hydrolysis technology deconstructs non-food biomass an order of magnitude faster than other processes and enhances its cost advantage by using no significant consumables. Renmatix is privately held, with operations in Georgia (USA) currently capable of converting three dry tons of cellulosic biomass to Plantro™ sugar per day, and a world-class technical center in Pennsylvania (USA).
