Efficient processes for high-purity, low-cost production.

Micromidas has developed a process to convert a wide variety of carbohydrate feedstocks to higher value chemicals. Our goal is to produce both conventional and new, highly functional chemicals from biobased feestocks in a manner cost competitive with petrochemicals.

The Micromidas process produces a series of furan intermediates from the dehydration of carbohydrate feedstocks such as cellulose and hemicellulose, which are then derivatized to chemicals such as para-xylene and toluene.
