Consumers increasingly value products, packaging and fuels produced from sustainable resources. Sustainable technology company Anellotech wants to help meet this demand by commercializing technology for the production of cost-competitive renewable chemicals and fuels.

Anellotech’s patented Bio-TCat™ process produces 100% bio-based BTX (i.e. benzene, toluene and xylene) ‘drop-in’ aromatic chemicals, offering a solution to the lack of efficient, scalable processes for producing BTX from renewable, non-food biomass. In addition to BTX, Bio-TCat technology produces a heavier aromatics product, which can be used as bio-marine fuel, or can be upgraded to make diesel or jet fuel blendstocks.

Anellotech was founded in 2008 and has raised US$80 million in cash and in-kind contributions to date. These considerable investments come from our highly-motivated strategic partners, who are working alongside us to develop and commercialize Bio-TCat, our efficient, eco-friendly thermal catalytic process which helps chemical producers and brand owners economically meet environmental sustainability goals. A recent Lifecycle Analysis (LCA) review of Anellotech’s greenhouse gas emissions (GHG), by Jacobs Engineering Group showed that renewably-sourced Bio-TCat products produce significantly lower greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions compared to identical petro-based chemicals.

Anellotech’s bio-aromatics are currently produced using loblolly pine feedstock from the southern United States at Anellotech’s T-Cat8® pilot plant in Silsbee, Texas. Commercially-viable process yields and catalyst performance have been demonstrated and TCat-8 has shown stable, consistent and safe process operations in multi-month studies. As a result, Anellotech has begun planning for scale-up design and engineering of a commercial plant.

Anellotech’s world-class R&D team is jointly developing the Bio-TCat process through long-term partnerships with leaders in process development, catalysis, engineering design, and licensing. Anellotech’s alliance network includes:

  • Johnson Matthey, a global specialty chemicals company which is co-developing and providing catalysts for the development program and will manufacture catalysts for commercial use
  • IFP Energies nouvelles (IFPEN), the French public research entity, is collaborating with Anellotech throughout the process development program.
  • Axens, an international provider of licensed advanced technologies, is our partner for commercialization, global licensing, basic engineering design, start-up and technical support for licensees.
  • Suntory, one of the world’s leading consumer beverage companies, has partnered with Anellotech to advance the development and commercialization of cost-competitive bio-aromatics, including bio-paraxylene, the key component needed to make a 100 percent bio-based PET beverage bottles
  • Toyota Tsusho Corporation, is the Toyota Group's general trading company that develops diversified businesses. Toyota Tsusho announced publicly its investment in Anellotech in July 2016.

SARETCO is a French company specialized in supplying spare parts for Waste-To-Energy (WTE) plants (Pushers, Grates ...) for over 35 years.

With its maxim “Let's not waste our waste”, a source of energy, company has innovated numerous solutions to deal with the operator’s daily problems that ensure a long life and reduction of maintenance costs, and patented a number of combustion grate designs.



Gazpack BV was founded in 2006 as a daughter company of Airpack Netherlands BV and has since developed a unique system for upgrading biomass to green gas. The patented Sulaway® system is unique in its kind because it produces no waste; all outputs of the process are reusable. It’s a regenerative process that separates the sulphur from the biogas or oil gas, producing almost pure and usable sulphur gas and clean gas without any waste.

The Gazpack Sulaway® system can be applied in various gas streams and processes. Due to the modular building configuration and custom engineering, the Gazpack Sulaway® system can be integrated into any existing facilities and manufactured according client requirements. Our experience in both oil and gas industry as well as the agricultural sector allows us to build the best suitable installation for the required application.

The Engie PlantAlways seen as a great ice breaker - begin networking at this year’s event with the Engie plant tour.

The Les Awirs power plant is located on the left side of the Meuse, upstream of the industrial area of Liège. By 1973 it developed a power of 670 MW distributed among five groups; the main fuels were coal and natural gas. Three units have been definitively decommissioned in 1998. Whilst unit 5 is still powered by natural gas, unit 4 experienced in 2005 an unprecedented conversion: coal has been completely replaced by wood residues as fuel, a world first!

Join your fellow delegates and speakers and really get to know them before the conference and expo starts on the 22nd October.

The next day following the conference, we have a networking drinks reception. These are just some of the FREE networking opportunities we have lined up for you this year, all included in your delegate pass.
