Renmatix and Virent to collaborate on bio-based products

Mary Page Bailey

Renmatix, Inc. (King of Prussia, Pa.; www.renmatix.com) and Virent, Inc. (Madison, Wis.; www.virent.com) have announced a strategic collaboration to convert affordable cellulosic sugars to renewable chemicals and bio-based packaging materials. Under the terms of the multi-phase development project, Renmatix’s Plantrose platform will be evaluated and potentially optimized to provide an affordable sugar stream for Virent’s Bioforming process for the large-scale production of bio-based paraxylene. Integrating local feedstock processing with on-site commercial production will lower costs and increase the viability of using renewable chemicals in bio-based packaging and plastics for industrial and consumer goods.
