Project at a Glance Contents on the CD ROM
  • The p-xylene, which Virent had trade named BioFormPX, is identical to p-xylene produced via pertroleum-based processes and can be used as a drop-in replacement in the value chain.
  • Virent, a catalytic chemistry firm says it has successfully produced para-xylene
    (p-xylene) from plant-based sugars.
  • Virent also demonstrated the production of 100% bio-based para-xylene which fills the "missing piece" to make a 100% bio-based PET bottle.
  • Biocatalytic process to produce terephthalic acid and isophthalic acid from p-xylene and m-xylene. Terephthalic acid has been prepared by oxidizing p-xylene with bacteria belonging to the genus burkholderia.
  • Conversion of p-xylene into terephthalic acid is accomplished by a single bacterial strain that produces all of the requisite enzymes.
  • Bio-based paraxylene provides an alternative feedstock for the PET supply chain.
  • The challenging issue is
    to replace the PTA component by a bio-based version to cost-effectively achieve 100% renewable bio-based PET.
  • Gevo employed prototypes of commercial operations from the petrochemical and
    refining industries to make P-Xylene from isobutanol.
