About Rennovia

Rennovia: The Basics

Founded in 2009, Rennovia Inc. is a specialty chemical company focused on the creation of novel processes for the cost advantaged production of chemicals from renewable feedstocks
Rennovia is developing processes for the production of biobased glucaric acid, adipic acid, 1,6-hexanediol, hexamethylenediamine (HMD), and other important building blocks for a wide range of functional materials
Rennovia is employing cutting edge technology to adapt chemical catalytic processes, already proven to be scalable and efficient in the refining and chemical industries, for the conversion of biorenewable feedstocks to existing specialty and commodity chemicals
Rennovia is targeting production of high value chemical products with established, multi-billion dollar markets
Our goal is to produce the same chemicals that are currently produced from petroleum, but to do so from renewable feedstocks, at lower cost, by employing sustainable, low carbon footprint, environmentally friendly process technologies, and state of the art catalysts
