Industrial sugars are a key element of bio-based chemicals and fuels. Weyland has developed a novel process to convert low value cellulosic feedstock to industrial sugars. The sugars can subsequently be processed to biofuels or other chemicals.
The technology differs from mainstream technologies as it is based on chemical rather than biological processes, which gives the technology several competitive advantages. Operation of our pilot plant has provided valuable input on technology and process development.
Weyland AS is a privately owned company located in Bergen, Norway. The development of the technology has been sponsored by Statoil and Innovation Norway et al.
Our business model is to provide core technology for the cellulose to sugar conversion processes
