Cerealus Announces Licensing Agreement for Bio-Based Ceregel™, A Next Generation Strength and Retention System
Date:4/15/2010

Sustainable Technology Trailblazer Cerealus Holdings to Commercialize UMaine Commercial Paper-Making Technology, Ceregel™

Waterville, ME (Vocus) April 15, 2010 -- Cerealus Holdings, in collaboration with the University of Maine, is excited to announce their latest bio-based technology, “Ceregel™, A Next Generation Strength + Retention System.” Originally patented by DuPont and later developed by the UMaine Process Development Center, Ceregel™ is a smart process proven technology for paper mills that will enable improved productivity and lower production costs.

Ceregel™ utilizes five patents and involves cooking cationic polyacrylamides with cationic starch to form “super” starch molecules, which have improved retention properties for commercial paper machines. Ceregel™ benefits and validated effects include increased strength, increased retention, and higher press solids. Cerealus has secured exclusive licensing rights for Ceregel™ from the University of Maine and recently initiated a full sales and installation campaign.

"This unique technology is an exciting addition to our technology portfolio, and we have already begun an aggressive commercialization campaign," says Tony Jabar, CEO of Cerealus Holdings. "Our process improvements will provide paper mills with various optimization solutions and should enable mills to save up to $14 per ton.”

Mike Bilodeau, Director of the Process Development Center at the University of Maine, went on to say, “This groundbreaking new low-capital technology gives paper makers a range of options to improve product quality, productivity, and lower manufacturing costs. We believe this technology will soon be considered “best known practice” in the industry, deployed across a wide range of paper grades and manufacturing processes.”

In addition to Ceregel™, Cerealus develops a number of sustainable technologies including Holdout™, a non-toxic, biodegradable replacement for fluorinated compounds; Agricultural Mulch Film; compost bags that are odor, water and grease resistant; biodegradable greenhouse film; construction, household, and general purpose plant-based adhesives; and a plant-based coating binder used to replace oil-based, synthetic binders.
