Application of High Throughput Experimentation to the Production of Commodity Chemicals from Renewable Feedstocks

Gary M. Diamond, Vince Murphy and Thomas R. Boussie

Abstract

Rennovia is employing cutting-edge technology to adapt chemical catalytic processes, already proven to be scalable and efficient in the refining and chemical industries, for the conversion of biorenewable feedstocks to existing major-market chemicals. This chapter outlines Rennovia’s general approach to the cost-advantaged production of renewable chemicals, and describes the scale-up of Rennovia’s bio-based adipic acid process and how it offers the potential for significant commercial and environmental advantages over the current petrochemical process.
