Trillium Renewable Chemicals is developing a chemical process technology for the manufacture of acrylonitrile and acetonitrile from renewable feedstocks (e.g. glycerol). Acrylonitrile is a valuable intermediate used in the production of a wide range of molecules, e.g.: acrylic fibers, carbon fibers, specialty amines, nylon, adiponitrile, styrene acrylonitrile resin, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, nitrile rubbers, and acrylamide. By making a green, drop-in replacement precursor, Trillium helps customers reach sustainability goals. These drop-in replacement molecules have a wide range of applications with strong sustainability drivers, e.g.: apparel, automotive parts, toys, sporting goods, household furnishings, and water treatment.
