Cool Corn Competition – A look behind NCGA’s 6 Consider Corn Challenge III winners

News from the Windy City came in that Låkril Technologies, a newly launched start-up company has already licensed catalyst technology from the University of Minnesota to convert corn-derived lactic acid to bio-based acrylics that provide at least 35% CO2 reduction from today’s petroleum-derived acrylics.

Does Låkril sound familiar? How about BioAstra Technologies? Catalyxx? Sylvatex? Danimer Scientific? Ok, for sure you’ve heard of National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). What do they all have in common? They are the winners of the National Corn Growers Association’s Consider Corn Challenge III, which was announced at the ABLC in San Francisco recently.
