Avantium builds furanics pilot plant

The blog mentioned Avantium before in its coverage of the Biobased Chemicals East conference last month. The company announced today that it has started construction of its 20 tons/year pilot plant to produce furanics-based monomers and polymers starting in the first quarter of 2011.

The plant is located at the Chemelot site in Geleen, the Netherlands, where other industrial producers such as DSM and Sabic are also located. I also mentioned about Chemelot being talked about by DSM during the conference.
