Green Biologics expand in the US

Green Biologics Inc., the U.S. subsidiary of U.K.-based Green Biologics Ltd., announced two distribution agreements in early April. The company is currently retrofitting a corn ethanol plant in Little Falls, Minnesota, to produce renewable n-butanol and acetone. The first distribution agreement, announced April 7, is with Texas-based Nexeo Solutions. Nexeo Solutions will become Green Biologics’ national distributor of n-butanol and acetone to U.S. customers in several key markets, including coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers (CASE); household, industrial and institutional cleaners (HI&I); personal care intermediates (PCI), and energy chemicals. The second distribution agreement, announced April 14, was signed with Acme-Hardesty who will focus its efforts on marketing Green Biologics’ n-butanol and acetone for high-value applications in food ingredients, cleaning products and bio-lubricants.
