Pivoting from Plants-to-Food to Plants-to-X – What’s the future of Ag?

The Technology

The Eosix surfactant is made from a combination of natural oil-derived fatty acids as well as starch-derived furans. Their process is entirely chemical, using commercially-available solid catalysts and mild temperatures and pressures. They don’t use any microbes or fermentation processes.

Check out how their biosurfactant increases de-oxygenation and outperforms other surfactants in their tests, a look at their techno-economic analysis and more down and dirty details here at “Clean Conscience AND Clean Clothes: The Digest’s 2020 Multi-Slide Guide to Sironix Renewables”.

In October 2019, we took a look at Sironix Renewables as one of The Digest’s Next 50 Companies to Disrupt the World. More on that story here.

In May 2019, the Digest reported on the 8 winners from the 2019 Imagine Chemistry collaborative innovation challenge, of which Sironix was one of two overall winners that were awarded joint development agreements. Sironix received a JDA from Nouryon and Imagine Chemistry partner Unilever for its technology to make surfactants from plants. More on that story here.

Go to next page for more on Sironix, how COVID impacted their labs, what the crystal ball shows, and how food and fermentation fits in.
