We can’t remain dependent on oil anymore. The finite supply and market volatility of petroleum is transforming not only the energy industry, but also the $2 trillion global chemical industry.
Rivertop has placed clean, renewable feedstocks at the headwaters of the chemical industry.
The proven science of carbohydrate chemistry has enabled Rivertop to unlock the potential of plant-based chemicals at an industrial scale. With this science in hand, Rivertop has placed clean, renewable feedstocks at the headwaters of the chemical industry. Through our technology platform, sugars are converted into chemical building blocks which, with further refinement, supply a steady stream of non-toxic, biodegradable chemicals. As these materials flow into industrial applications, they are transformed into thousands of bioproducts that retain the environmentally-friendly characteristics of their natural feedstocks.
Every carbon atom found in Rivertop’s building block chemicals comes from renewable sources rather than from the hydrocarbons found in crude oil. As a result, our chemicals have a Renewable Carbon Index of 1, calculated by dividing the number of carbons derived from renewable sources by the total number of carbons in the chemical. One-hundred percent of the carbons in our chemicals are renewable.
