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.
