Avantium is a leading chemical technology company and a forerunner in renewable chemistry. Based on extensive experience and advanced catalytic research Avantium develops efficient processes and sustainable products made from biobased materials. Avantium offers a breeding ground for revolutionary renewable chemistry solutions. From invention to commercially viable production processes.
One of Avantium’s success stories is the YXY technology®, with which it created PEF: a completely new, high-quality plastic made from plant-based industrial sugars. Avantium is working on a host of other groundbreaking projects such as a second generation technology process, or biorefinery technology, to produce sugars for the production of chemicals and fuels from non-food materials. The proprietary process is highly feedstock-flexible allowing use of forestry residues (e.g. woodchip), corn-stover, bagasse, sugar beet residue and produces a high purity 2G glucose product and lignin for energy and other applications; all in near quantitative yield.
Avantium’s offices and headquarters are based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Over 140 highly skilled colleagues representing 20 nationalities, Avantium fosters a dynamic and enthusiastic workplace that is constantly seeking new ways to improve and expand the impact of advanced catalytic research & technology. We ask of our employees what we ask of our company: collaborative, open-minded and results-driven creativity. In an ever-changing world Avantium is ambitiously chasing exciting new ideas and initiatives.
