The potential of utilizing lignocellulosic biomass and waste plastic materials as viable sources for liquid transportation fuel is now well recognized.

Unfortunately, existing biomass and waste plastic conversion schemes tend to focus on either traditional thermochemical (pyrolysis and acid hydrolysis) or biological (enzyme attack) pretreatment regimes and, therefore, are inefficient from a modern chemical engineering perspective.  There exists, however, another very promising approach that utilizes the remarkable transformational properties of “supercritical water” (SCW) to rapidly depolymerize and liquefy giant biomass and waste plastic molecules into sugar solutions and/or oily hydrocarbon substances.  As recently demonstrated by various researchers in Japan, China, and Europe, supercritical water (SCW) conversion schemes for the depolymerization of biomass and waste plastics are projected to be technologically feasible for industrial-scale applications in the near future.  Xtrudx plans to capitalize on this promising new supercritical hydrolysis approach by the scale-up and commercialization of its patent-protected extruder-based SCW technology.  To this end, Xtrudx is presently offering investment opportunities to qualified investors and/or business groups who share Xtrudx’s vision.
