Investment highlights

Our lead products address the need for a circular new plastics economy

Our leading innovative chemicals FDCA is the key ingredients for a novel polymer PEF: 100% plant-based and recyclable, with superior performance.

Addressing $200B+ markets with product leadership

PEF has huge potential in the packaging, textiles and film sectors, growing markets worth over $200 billion. Consumers put pressure on those industries to shift to circularity and decouple plastics from fossil feedstock.

Innovative product pipeline

Avantium has developed a pipeline of novel technologies at various stages of commercialization, with large upside potential:

  • Our most mature platform is our YXY® Technology used to produce FDCA, the main building block for PEF. Our FDCA technology is the most advanced technology for PEF production across the section and we expect the first commercial production of FDCA and PEF to begin in 2024.
  • Our Ray Technology™ produces sustainable plantMEG that is cost-competitive compared to petroleum-based MEG, which is currently generating annual sales of $25 billion. PlantMEG will supply the future PEF market as well as the large existing PET market.
  • A number of other advanced renewable chemical technologies are being explored in our laboratories and pilot plants:
    Dawn Technology™: our biorefinery process for industrial sugars from non-food biomass.
    Volta Technology: the conversion of carbon dioxide (CO2) to chemicals via electrochemistry.



Outstanding partnerships

We have ongoing partnerships with industry leaders and brand owners to develop, scale and commercialize our technologies and make our innovations global successes. We collaborate with multiple partners within the value chain. From feedstock providers who wish to diversify their markets, to converters and chemical companies with the aspiration to transition to fossil-free chemicals, and consumer brands who are looking for plant-based solutions for packaging and textiles.

Scalable business model

We are expert at bringing great ideas out of the R&D lab, developing them at pilot-scale and preparing them for commercial production. We are currently constructing the world’s first commercial FDCA plant in Delfzijl, The Netherlands. The official opening ceremony is scheduled on 22 October 2024. In addition to the sale of product offtakes from the commercial plant, Avantium plans to sell licenses to our proprietary technologies to chemical companies, converters and consumers brands. In February 2023, the first industrial technology license agreement for YXY® Technology was signed with the US-based company Origin Materials. Licensing will be the key driver for future cash flows – it is capital efficient and enables fast deployment around the globe. Economies of scale and continuous improvements in existing technologies will drive down the cost-curve for our licensees and will allow them to further penetrate key markets.



Proven ability to scale with three operational pilot plants, state of the art R&D lab and robust portfolio of >166 patent families

Avantium has more than 20 years of experience at the forefront of catalysis, chemical process development and polymers. We have a strong IP portfolio with more than 166 granted and pending patent families.

A proven revenue generating track record with the R&D Solutions business

Our revenue generating R&D Solutions business serves the R&D catalysis needs of international blue-chip chemical players. Catalysis has provided the technological basis on which many of our innovative technologies have been developed. In 2023, Avantium R&D Solutions recorded revenues of €13.5 million.

ESG is built into Avantium’s DNA and drives the company’s business model

Sustainability is integral to our core business strategy. At Avantium, sustainability is built into our very purpose. It drives our employees, informs our technology development and excites our commercial partners. The global climate breakdown demands an entirely new way of doing business, moving the world from its dependence on fossil-based resources towards a more sustainable future. Avantium is focused specifically on accelerating that transition. Every technology we develop affirms our commitment to helping create a fossil-free future for the planet.
