Green nano-chemistry company Sylvatex and Valicor, a specialist in advanced separations and recovery, have announced a new joint development agreement (JDA).
The JDA will see the development, construction and commercialisation of Sylvatex’s MicroX technology, which can convert distillers corn oil (DCO) and other plant-based oil feedstocks into the company’s proprietary renewable blendstock.
Sylvatex creates renewable nanoscale emulsion systems that can be used in fuels, lithium battery manufacturing, and other specialty chemical applications such as food and fragrances.
Valicor specialises in the recovery and repurposing of byproducts from a range of production facilities. This includes corn oil extraction for ethanol production.
“This agreement marks the commencement of a long-term partnership with Valicor, a leader in conversion technologies”, said Virginia Klausmeier, CEO of Sylvatex.
“Sylvatex and Valicor have enjoyed a strong collaborative relationship, advancing innovations. We look forward to expanding our partnership to create value and better utilize existing assets.”
