The Glycell Process

Leaf Resources’ breakthrough pretreatment technology – the Glycell Process – revolutionises bio-based production from lingocellulosic biomass.

Using advanced chemistry and engineering, Glycell breaks down plant biomass at lower temperature and pressure to generate a higher yield of cellulose than conventional approaches.

High-Purity Sugars and Valuable Co-products

Glycell pretreatment is followed by enzymatic hydrolysis which converts cellulose into cellulosic sugars. Cellulosic sugars are a major feedstock for the multi-billion-dollar bio-based chemicals, bioplastics and biofuels markets. The process also yields lignin, hemicellulose and refined glycerol – valuable co-products.
