“Virent (Madison, WI) demonstrated their production of bio-paraxylene, bio-toluene, and bio-benzene from renewable resources whilst meeting typical industry specifications.
The company has broadened its product offerings for renewable chemicals through this process.
Their production of paraxylene at its Madison, Wisconsin laboratory, has reached a capacity of 10 tons per year which will allow Virent to serve the needs of multiple collaborators
for product validation and market demonstrations. Aromatic 100, benzene and toluene are also available at smaller capacities for similar purposes.
