MYBiomass Sdn. Bhd. (MYBiomass) and American Process Inc. (API) Announce Joint-Development Agreement for the Production of Nanocellulose for Downstream Applications
CYBERJAYA, Selangor, Malaysia, 10 Jan 2017
MYBiomass and API announced a Joint-Development Work (JDA) for production of nanocellulose and cellulosic sugars from oil palm empty fruit-bunches (EFBs) into material as enhancing additives in textile, paper, and automotive parts amongst others. The JDA is funded by MYBiomass and harnesses MYBiomass’ strength in oil palm biomass supply, technology adaptation, market development, and combines this with API’s technical and material development expertise. MYBiomass’s goal is to be a pioneer in setting up commercial biorefineries with potential participation from technology providers, off-takers and investors. This is in-line with the Malaysian Biomass Initiative (MBI) as it addresses the potential of moving up the value-chain, promotes sustainable feedstock supply, and shifts focus to higher-value downstream production.

API Europe Receives Funding from EU Horizon 2020 for the conversion of woody biomass to lignocellulosic sugars and nanocellulose
Belgium, Europe, September 2016
API Europe (Athens, Greece), an affiliate of American Process Inc. (Atlanta, GA), is one of 14 partners under the BIOFOREVER PROJECT, “BIO-based products from FORestry via Economically Viable European Routes”, to receive funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 program. A number of pre-treatment and subsequent conversion technologies will be demonstrated by various partners, including delivering commercialization routes for the most promising value-added products.
Theodora Retsina CEO of API Europe, commented “We are delighted to be part of BIOFOREVER consortium and to collaborate with the other members on this exciting European project. Woody biomass is an important European feedstock to fuel the bioeconomy and we look forward to evaluating the many different types of biomass included in the BIOFOREVER project. Biorefineries, as envisioned in BIOFOREVER, that produce commodity fuels and chemicals as well as high-value co-products like nanocellulose will have the most financial viability and impact.”
