Chemicals Rooted in Plants
Our technology is flexible and has many applications. We will partner with you in the development of new processes that meet your needs.


Our technology can produce a variety of affordable and wholesome sweeteners, expanding their availability for consumers: 

  • Allitol
  • Allulose
  • Arabinose
  • Fructose
  • Sorbitol
  • Tagatose
  • Talitol
  • Xylitol

Bulk Chemicals

Manufacture bio-derived bulk chemicals at a lower cost than their petro-chemical equivalents. Our processes lead to products such as:

  • α – Ketoglutarate
  • Ethylene glycol
  • Furandicarboxylic acid
  • Glycerol
  • Glycolic acid
  • Glyceraldehyde
  • D – Lactic acid
  • L – Lactic acid
  • Pyruvic acid

Fine Chemicals

We have successfully developed numerous biocatalytic cascade processes involving more than a dozen enzymes. Processes that were industrialized by our licensees have endowed our partners with a tremendous competitive advantage over their peers.

Products include for example:

  • Bile acids and other steroids

Pulp & Paper

Annikki’s organosolv process produces customizable, high-quality and low cost cellulose.



The quality of our lignin is maintained during the mild separation process. Due to its low molecular weight, being non-condensed and therefore super reactive, our lignin is highly suitable for use in chemical applications. 

Applications include: 

  • Alkyd resins
  • Bioplastics
  • Carbon fibers
  • Drug delivery
  • Energy storage
  • Lignin-based substitutes for PF (phenol-formaldehyde resins)
  • Polyurethane resins
  • UV protection
