Renmatix Reveals Supercritical Hydrolysis as Lowest-Cost Pathway to Cellulosic Sugar
Date:9/27/2011

KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa., Sept. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Renmatix, the leading producer of cellulosic sugars, today unveiled the Plantrose™ process, the company's commercial approach to producing sugars more cheaply than ever before. Access to non-food derived low-cost industrial sugars, the foundation of the emerging bioindustrial economy, will trigger a dramatic shift from petroleum-based fuels and chemicals to cost-effective biobased alternatives.

At Renmatix's demonstration facility in Kennesaw, Georgia, the company has already scaled its process to convert three dry tons of woody biomass to sugars daily. To further support the company's growth plans, Renmatix is commencing technical and business operations in King of Prussia, located in Pennsylvania's burgeoning hub of innovation.

The unveiling of Renmatix's Plantrose™ process was framed by today's roundtable of industry leaders, moderated by legendary investor John Doerr of Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers (KPCB). Roundtable participants discussed the growing importance of industrial sugars across the global economy and how Renmatix's technology is posed to disrupt the industry status quo.

Plantrose™ and Supercritical Hydrolysis

Renmatix's Plantrose™ process is the first to break down cellulose at industrial scale through supercritical hydrolysis, which utilizes water at elevated temperatures and pressures to quickly solubilize cellulose. The supercritical state of matter has long been utilized in industrial processes including coffee decaffeination and pharmaceutical applications.

Before the arrival of the Plantrose process, supercritical water had never successfully yielded sugar from biomass at significant scale. The process b
