In Alabama, Ayas Renewables, Inc. has completed definitive engineering and is in the process of final site selection for a large-scale domestic plant to convert low-value waste biodiesel crude glycerol into high-value propylene glycol using the company’s revolutionary vapor-phase process. The patented process is based on award-winning research conducted by Dr. William Sutterlin in cooperation with the Missouri Soybean Merchandising Council with partial funding provided by Missouri soybean farmers and their checkoff.
The Ayas conversion technology efficiently transforms this glycerin into extremely pure (99.9%) high-value bio-renewable propylene glycol with minimal waste and at lowest cost. The Ayas produced propylene glycol is the same molecule that’s traditionally produced from petroleum, but with the added benefit of being green and bio-renewable without increasing cost.
