Leaf Resources Limited (ASX:LER) is one of the world’s leading companies in converting non-food plant biomass into useful, sustainable, renewable products. Our proprietary Glycell™ process is unique. Using Glycell™ , we can efficiently and cost-effectively transform biomass from agricultural and forestry waste into cellulosic sugars, lignin and refined glycerol.
Leaf’s technology delivers an essential ingredient to produce renewable chemicals and biodegradable and recyclable biomaterials. Cellulosic sugars have the potential to replace virtually all petroleum-derived materials used in manufacturing today.
The world is shifting from a fossil-based economy to a sustainable bioeconomy. We offer a disruptive technology to make this a reality.
Efficient Pretreatment Process
Glycell™ technology, developed and available for licensing from Leaf Resources, is an innovative biomass pretreatment process. Glycell™ operates at low temperature and pressure and uses glycerol as the low cost, recyclable reagent. The process effectively breaks down plant biomass to generate a high yield and concentration of cellulose, while optimising capital and operating efficiency.
