Upcoming seminar focuses on Cellulosic Biofuels
Tom Kindler, Operations Leader at Renmatix, will be the guest speaker in the next of a series of seminars sponsored by RBI and the Student Chaper of TAPPI at Georgia Tech.
Kindler is a graduate of Georgia Tech and Lake Superior State University. He has 20-plus years experience in paper manufacturing with NewPage Corporation and Stora Enso.
Renmatix is a global technology licensor enabling the low-cost production of cellulosic sugars from non-food biomass serving chemical and fuels markets. The company’s proprietary Plantrose™ process challenges conventional sugar economics by cheaply converting cellulosic biomass – from wood waste to agricultural residue – into useful, cost-effective sugars. Renmatix’s supercritical hydrolysis technology deconstructs non-food biomass an order of magnitude faster than other processes and enhances its cost advantage by using no significant consumables. Renmatix is privately held, with operations in Georgia (USA) currently capable of converting three dry tons of cellulosic biomass to Plantro™ sugar per day, and a world-class technical center in Pennsylvania.
The seminar is free and will begin at 4:30 p.m.
