Home > Gert-Jan Gruter (NL): Plant-based Plastic Bottles
Gert-Jan Gruter and his team at Avantium have developed a revolutionary chemical process for converting plant-based sugars into the new building block Furandicarboxylic Acid (FDCA). FDCA can be used to produce a wide range of renewable plant-based materials, but the most exciting application is a polyester known as polyethylene furanoate (PEF). It has several properties that will allow PEF to replace aluminium, glass, and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) which is derived from petrochemicals.
