Avantium's proprietary high-throughput technology enables a faster and more cost-effective development of new and improved products and production processes. Using its unique rational approach towards the design of experiments and data analysis, Avantium is capable of accomplishing innovations with superior success rate.

The company's mission is to increase the success rate and economics of product and process development.

Building on its expertise and track record in the energy and chemicals industries, Avantium has developed YXY - a family of green building blocks for making materials and fuels that can compete on price and performance. YXY (pronounced ~ixy) is a patented technology that converts biomass into Furanics. It is the perfect solution for today's challenges as it uses carbohydrates as feedstock, enabling the manufacture of green and sustainable products. This fast and cost-effective production process is based on Avantium's catalytic technology. YXY can be implemented in existing chemical production methods. Avantium collaborates with leading companies to start using green materials and fuels based on YXY building blocks.
