Leaf Resources Limited (ASX:LER) is focused on making sustainable products from plant biomass.

We offer an advanced technology package for breaking down plant derived biomass to useful, sustainable, renewable and biodegradable products. Leaf Resources’ innovative Glycell™ is a disruptive process technology that can reshape the economics of using large-scale biomass resources as a replacement for petroleum-derived products.

The world is actively shifting from a petroleum based economy to a sustainable green economy. Leaf Resources has positioned itself to capitalise and add significant value in this transition process. The growing billion-dollar bio-based products markets uses plant derived components (cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin) as primary feedstock to make biomaterials, such as biodegradable and recyclable plastics, paper, fabric and green chemicals. Cellulose, the next-generation biomaterial, has the potential to replace virtually all petroleum-derived materials and transform various industries.

An essential and a technically complex step is the initial breakdown of plant biomass to its constituent parts.

This is commonly known as the Pretreatment Process.

The Glycell™ process technology developed and available for licensing from Leaf Resources is a suite built around an innovative and effective biomass pretreatment process that is a unique combination of highly advanced chemistry and engineering. The Glycell™ technology operates at low temperature and pressure and uses glycerol as the low cost, recyclable reagent. The process effectively breaks down plant biomass to generate high yield and high concentration of cellulose, while optimising both capital and operating efficiency.

Our vision is to build and grow a robust global business around sustainable and renewable bio-based products thereby rewarding our shareholders. Further, as a member of the rapidly growing bio-economy, we seek to bring benefit to the environment and the community.

Intellectual and creative diversity, a commitment to innovation and teamwork are our defining values, fueling our business growth as we serve the needs of our diverse global customer and partner base.

Leaf Resources believes that partnering with industry leaders across a breadth of product supply chains will bring synergies and speed the commercial production of our production process technology in a capital efficient manner. Leaf sees this path as an effective means of deployment to multiple plants in diverse settings and the opportunity to further innovate in both product and process technologies.
