Circa Sustainable Chemicals

Market Research.png

Circa has developed the world’s first and only continuous thermochemical process to convert cellulosic biomass, and in particular, saw dust, into the platform molecule Levoglucosenone. The Furacell™ process is highly selective, reducing downstream separation processes, energy use, and consequent waste disposal while the char produced provides enough energy to run the process. Circa produces Cyrene from Levoglucosenone and is currently evaluating a number of routes for production to downstream chemicals. The SuperBIO value chain consists of Norske Skog, a Norwegian pulp and paper company and Will & Co, a Dutch specialty chemical distributor.
