xF Technologies

xF Technologies, based in Albuquerque, NM, turns any biomass into valuable products: fuel, additives, petrochemical replacements, and specialty chemicals. Experts in furan chemistry and homogeneous organic catalysis, xF’s patent-pending low-temperature chemical process breaks down almost any biomass from agricultural, solid waste, woody or algal waste to create specialty bio-based chemical additives and fuels. Additionally  the process involves adding an alcohol, which can be ethanol or methanol, thus making it a good partner for both the ethanol and natural gas industries.  xF is rapidly scaling up its process to a 25,000 gallon per year demonstration facility. xF’s technology will allow bio-fuel/additives production at about $2 / gallon and also reduces the production cost of important industrial chemicals such as levulinates, formates, and proprionates by about 80%.
