Anellotech CEO David Sudolsky to Present at 2016 BIO World Congress

April 11, 2016
Pearl River, New York – April 11, 2016 – Anellotech, a sustainable technology company focused on producing cost-competitive renewable chemicals from non-food biomass, today announced that David Sudolsky, President and CEO, will participate in a panel discussion at the 2016 BIO World Congress in San Diego, CA. The panel will take place on Monday, April 18th from 8:30 AM to 10:00 AM PST in room 11B at the San Diego Convention Center.

As part of the Congress’ Renewable Chemicals and Bio-based Materials track, the panel discussion will focus on building aromaticity in renewable chemicals. Mr. Sudolsky will provide an overview of Anellotech’s Bio-TCat™ technology, a one-reactor catalytic process that enables cost-competitive production of renewable aromatic chemicals (benzene, toluene and xylenes, “BTX”) from non-food biomass. Sudolsky will also provide an update on the Company’s current strategic partnerships, partnership opportunities, and progress towards commercialization.

Anellotech’s aligned and committed development and operating partners include:
  • Johnson Mathey - Catalyst Development & Manufacturing
  • IFP Energies Nouvelles (IFPEN) – Process Development
  • Axens – Process Design & Licensing
  • Suntory – Consumer Markets/Brand Ownership

These strategic alliances are core to Anellotech’s strategy of complementing its world-class R&D team with multinational partners to accelerate development and drive cost-competitiveness of Anellotech’s Bio-TCat technology.

Sudolsky’s presentation will also provide insight into Anellotech’s ability to enable consumer brand owners to meet sustainability demands through bio-based chemicals from non-food biomass.

Additional panel participants include Michael Saltzberg, Business Development Director at DuPont Industrial Biosciences, Len Rand, Chairman, President and CEO of xF Technologies, and Joop Groen, Manager of New Business Development at Biorizon-TNO. The panel will be moderated by Philipp Walter, Managing Director at Succinity.

About Anellotech
Anellotech is developing the Bio-TCat process to produce cost-competitive renewable aromatic chemicals (benzene, toluene and xylenes, “BTX”) from non-food biomass. Anellotech's key differentiator and ultimate competitive advantage is its use of a one-reactor catalytic process. Bio-TCat’s reactor outlet hydrocarbon product is substantially free of oxygen, and requires only mild hydrotreating to remove trace impurities, as often done in refineries. Contrast this with others’ multi-step pyrolysis processes that make a highly-oxygenated bio-oil intermediate product, which demand substantial amounts of costly hydrogen. Also, by using renewable and readily available non-food materials, such as wood, corn stover and bagasse, the Bio-TCat process is less expensive compared to processes relying on sugar as a feedstock, and avoids competition with the food chain. As a result, these renewable-sourced chemicals are expected to be produced and sold profitably against identical, petroleum-derived BTX counterparts. Anellotech complements its world-class R&D team with in-depth, highly-interactive, and long-term partnerships with leaders in process development, catalysis, engineering design, and licensing to accelerate development and drive cost-competitiveness. IFPEN is our process development and scale-up partner, Johnson Matthey is our catalyst development partner, and Axens is our partner for industrialization, commercialization, global licensing and technical support. Industry-leading strategic partners in the BTX supply chain, including Suntory and another multinational corporate investor that invested $10 million, have provided capital to Anellotech.
