Segetis Inc. has announced that its Minneapolis-based semi-works production facility is now fully operational and producing green chemicals suitable for development and further commercialization. At full capacity, the facility is expected to produce up to 250,000 pounds per year of chemicals and chemical building blocks sourced from rapidly renewable resources.
Since June 2008, Segetis has
progressed from lab-scale synthesis to engineering, designing and building a
semi-works manufacturing facility capable of producing materials for its
targeted applications. “The rapid development of these renewable chemical
products is a testament to the strength of our technology and team,” said Jim
Stoppert, president and CEO of Segetis Inc. “The successful start-up of our
semi-works facility enables us to now move quickly into targeted, larger-scale
trials for products like polyol and plasticizers.”
