Leaf energy s glycell process

Leaf Energy’s Glycell™ Process

An innovative solution to the emerging need in the cellulose market disruptive technology for cellulose production


The glycell process proprietary technology for cellulose production
The Glycell™ ProcessProprietary technology for cellulose production

The Glycell ™ process has compelling advantages over traditional methods of cellulose extraction

  • Simple, innovative, low cost and effective

  • Uses a waste reagent

  • Low temperature and low pressure

  • Operates continuously

  • Uses abundant renewable resource

  • Significantly lower capital costs

    20 ton per hour plant based on Andritz quote - Base cost $18.4M total cost after contingency, profit planning etc $32.8M. Compare with Lignol, Borregard demonstration plants, similar capex but 1 ton per day

  • Significantly lower operating costs

    Waste reagent, low energy, low capital and quick (30 min) processing time

  • Off the shelf equipment

  • Operates at any scale

Product benefits:

Economic benefits:


E nvironmental benefits utilising waste biomass at low energy
Environmental benefitsUtilising waste biomass at low energy

The Glycell™ process can produce cellulose at any scale eliminating capital expenditure as a barrier to entry
