Over the past year, Green Biologics has built a robust pipeline of domestic and export customers combined with multiple partnerships to bring its products to downstream markets. These include distribution agreements with Acme Hardesty, Nexeo Solutions, and Caldic as well as a strategic partnership with HOC Industries, a custom blender, packager and distributor of consumer and government products. The company is collaborating with other industry leaders in a range of specialty markets and applications where performance and sustainability drive value.
“The start of our first commercial facility is a critical milestone in building our position within the industry as a global renewable speciality chemicals company,” said Sean Sutcliffe,chief executive of Green Biologics. “We’re very proud to announce the start of shipments to key customers in high-value markets and look forward to working with existing and new collaborators to bring a wide range of sustainable, environmentally-friendly products to shelves.”
Offered as a high-performance, high purity, fully-sustainable alternative to conventional petrochemical-based commodities, Green Biologics’ speciality chemicals aim to drive value in customer applications and downstream markets ranging from specialty coatings, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, personal care and consumer products. Both butanol and acetone products carry the brand name BioPure and have received USDA BioPreferred status. As a member of the American Chemistry Council (ACC), Green Biologics’ commercial facility is actively working towards meeting Responsible Carestandards.
Through its own manufacturing efforts and collaborations with industry partners, Green Biologics offers a wide portfolio of 100% bio-based products in addition to n-butanol and acetone, including high purity 100% bio-based isopropyl alcohol and a range of specialty esters of n-butanol, isopropanol and other bio-based alcohols.
“Having our n-butanol and acetone named as USDA Certified BioBased Products is yet another milestone that we can point to when demonstrating the value and differentiation of our products from conventional petrochemical-based commodities,” said David Anderson, global vice president of marketing for Green Biologics, when the company earned the certification status.
The BioPreferred program is a USDA-led initiative designed to assist in the development and expansion of markets for bio-based products. Created by the 2002 Farm Bill and expanded as part of the 2014 Farm Bill, BioPreferred is transforming the marketplace for bio-based goods through mandatory purchasing requirements for Federal agencies and contractors, as well as voluntary product certification and labeling.
