The Glycell Process

Leaf Resources’ breakthrough pretreatment technology – the Glycell Process – revolutionises the production of sustainable and renewable bio-based products from lignocellulosic biomass.

Our proprietary Glycell technology is a suite of highly advanced chemistry and engineering processes that break down plant biomass at lower temperature and pressure and generates a higher yield of cellulose than conventional approaches. Glycell is also more cost effective and operationally efficient.

The next step

The cellulose is then converted to cellulosic sugars through enzymatic hydrolysis and the lignin, hemicellulose and glycerol become valuable co-products. Cellulosic sugars are a major feedstock for green, renewable biobased chemicals, bioplastics, biofuels and products, with fast growing multi-billion dollar markets.
