Anellotech to Present at Upcoming Renewable & Bio-Based Chemicals Conferences

April 29, 2016
Pearl River, New York – April 29, 2016 – Anellotech, a sustainable technology company focused on producing cost-competitive renewable chemicals from non-food biomass, today announced that the Company will present at the following renewable and bio-based chemicals conferences:

  • ACI’s Renewable & Bio-based Chemicals Summit, Chicago, May 4th: Robert Evans, Vice President of Business Development, 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. Evans will also provide an update on Anellotech’s current strategic partnerships, partnership opportunities, and progress towards commercialization.
  • 5th Bio Based World 2016, Bangkok, Thailand, May 11th: David Sudolsky, President & CEO, will deliver a joint presentation with Yasuhiko Akanuma, Deputy General Manager, New Packaging Technology Development Dept. at Suntory, titled “Partnering to Advance the Development and Commercialization of Cost-Competitive Bioplastics Beverage Bottles.” For additional information on the Suntory-Anellotech alliance, please see the following press release.

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

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.
