30 Nov 2017

Imperial spinout Chrysalix Technologies has been nominated for the Biofuels Digest Hot 50, which celebrates the 50 hottest companies in the Advanced Bioeconomy in 2018.

Chrysalix is a company spun out of Imperial College London wich is developing processes for cost-effective production of bio-derived chemicals, fuels, and plastics from any type of woody material, including unwanted waste wood. The company’s technology, a proprietary process called Bio Flex, breaks down wood materials to give cellulose and lignin, which can subsequently be used to create bio-fuels, bio-materials, or renewable chemicals. 

Chrysalix was formed by a team from Imperial’s departments of Chemical Engineering and Chemistry, comprising Florence Gschwend, Jason Hallett, and Agnieszka Brandt-Talbot.

The Hot 50 is an annual list of the most exciting companies in the advanced bioeconomy. Nominees on the list range from disruptive start-ups to long-established household names such as BASF and Coca-Cola.
