The world is moving towards a bio-based economy. As biological processes replace current industrial ones for the production of chemicals, a cost-effective, clean, non-food source of cellulosic sugars is essential. Leaf Resources is a leading company in converting plant biomass into these sugars. Their patent pending Glycell™ process makes this possible with its advanced and highly effective technology for breaking down plant-derived biomass into useful, sustainable, renewable and biodegradable products. The biomass used in the Glycell™ process is mostly agricultural waste, and its supply is virtually limitless. The main reagent in the process is glycerol, a byproduct of biodiesel production, and it is the key to better performance and economics. Additionally, Leaf has licensed LeafCOAT, a 100% bio-based, renewable, recyclable, biodegradable waterproof barrier coating for packaging that can replace petroleum wax and plastic waterproofing, which cannot be recycled. LeafCOAT presents the same qualities in a completely biodegradable, recyclable, and sustainable solution. Utilized in food packaging, coffee cups, and container board, LeafCOAT will revolutionize the sustainability of this industry.
Utilizing a technology with the potential to replace virtually all petroleum-derived materials to transform plant biomass into sustainable products.
