Biofine Renewables, LLC, of Waltham, Massachusetts, is a biorefinery process technology company. Their patented technology is an advanced cellulosic biofuel and chemicals platform.
Biofine Inc. was started in 1987 as a technology holding company controlling the patents to the levulinic acid technology along with various license agreements to related derivatives.
In 1994 Biofine was awarded a grant by the US Department of Energy to construct a one ton per day demonstration plant in South Glens Falls, New York, which operated for 10 years in that location.
In 1999, Biofine was awarded the prestigious Presidential Green Chemistry Award for its development of the technology.
In 2005, Biofine became Biofine Renewables, LLC, a joint venture with an international oil and energy services company.
With 10 years of piloting, including a recently commissioned showcase pilot facility in Gorham, Maine, and an industrial-scale facility in southern Italy, Biofine can rightfully claim unrivaled levels of process piloting and development among advanced biofuel technologies.
Maine BioProducts considers the Biofine process to be the single most advanced biomass-to-fuels technology at this time.
