Carefully Developed over 25 years, the Biofine technology is now ready for commercial application

The Biofine technology enables the economic production of 100% renewable chemicals and second-generation advanced biofuels from any cellulosic waste stream.

The Biofine technology was invented by Dr. Stephen W. Fitzpatrick and is widely recognized as one of the most efficient methods to convert lignocellulose to high-value bioproducts. In 1999 Dr. Fitzpatrick was recognized for his discovery with the Presidential Green Chemistry Award.

Biofine’s recently awarded patents and upgraded pilot plant are on demonstration at the B2P2 Plant at the University of Maine РOrono РForest Bioproducts Research Institute in Old Town, Maine.
