BASF Venture Capital GmbH


Renmatix is the leading technology licensor for the conversion of biomass into cellulosic sugar.

The company’s proprietary Plantrose™ process challenges conventional sugar economics by cheaply converting cellulosic biomass – from wood waste to agricultural residue – into useful industrial sugars.
Plantrose supercritical hydrolysis technology deconstructs non-food biomass much faster than other processes and enhances its cost advantage by using virtually no consumables in processing.

Renmatix is a privately held company with a technical center in Pennsylvania and production operations at its Integrated Plantrose Complex (IPC) in Georgia, USA.
