Product Development

The key to our product development: Collaboration

Green Biologics has been a pioneer in producing bio-based specialty chemicals since 2003. At our plant in Little Falls, Minnesota, we’re equipped to commercialize our proprietary high-productivity fermentation platform. It uses natural ingredients as the feedstock to produce high-purity, USDA Certified BioPreferred® acetone and n-butanol.

In close collaboration with our customers, our product development team in Richmond, Virginia uses these formulations to produce 100% renewable alternatives to conventional petrochemical-based commodities for consumer and industrial applications.

These new products don’t sacrifice performance for safer ingredients. In fact, early test results are demonstrating that our renewable alternatives outperform conventional petro-chemical commodities in certain applications. Working with our customers, we are also proving that these drop-in replacements for petrochemicals can be cost competitive, too.

With more companies striving to meet sustainable development and procurement goals, we can deliver building block ingredients that can help them achieve their goals. With end-consumer demand for transparency and safety, we’re able to produce high performing natural product lines that can create a competitive business advantage. And with our high-touch technical support, we can help our customers get these high-performance, sustainable products to market faster and easier.
