Founded in 2008 by Prof. George Huber and David Sudolsky, Anellotech has developed a clean technology platform for inexpensively producing petrochemicals from renewable non-food biomass materials. Anellotech’s renewable products are less expensive to manufacture than their identical, petroleum-derived counterparts. Anellotech has the exclusive license from the University of Massachusetts for the core Catalytic Fast Pyrolysis (CFP) process technology developed in the Huber lab. The first application of the technology, Biomass to AromaticsTM ("BTA"), will produce "green" benzene, toluene, and xylenes ("BTX"). These drop-in, green versions of widely used petrochemicals are used in the creation of consumer goods such as plastic bottles, clothing, carpeting, automotive parts, as well as other everyday consumer and industrial products.
Anellotech's new research center and corporate headquarters has opened recently in Pearl River, NY, about twenty miles north of New York City. – less
