Avantium is a pioneer in the emerging industry of renewable and sustainable chemistry. Our most advanced technology converts plant-based sugars into furandicarboxylacid (FDCA), the building block of the plant-based polyester PEF. PEF has superior (barrier) properties compared to today’s widely used petroleum-based packaging materials, enabling high value circular polyester solutions. This presentation will give an update of our commercialization status, but more importantly will show the value of PEF to enable a sustainable future.
