Comet Biorefining, Inc.
Bio-based products can potentially replace petro-based products in a range of industries, improving sustainability through the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Comet Biorefining’s proprietary technology converts non-food biomass, such as agricultural and forest material, into high-purity dextrose sugar. The sugar can be transformed into a range of renewable chemicals and biomaterials and valuable by-products from the process can be used for animal nutrition and performance chemicals. Involving industry leaders across the supply chain, such as SDTC-funded BioAmber, this project will build a 200 tonnes/day demonstration facility to test the technology and develop upstream and downstream partnerships for large-scale commercialization.
