Reluceo, Inc. is a leading green chemistry company dedicated to the discovery and development of sustainable technology platforms for manufacturing of functional polymers, bioplastics and other chemical products from non-food biomass and underutilized agricultural and forestry resources.
There is a clear need for the chemical industry to move away from non-renewable sources for various products. At the same time current green technologies cannot yet offer a full spectrum of replacements for majority of materials and biofuels. Our goals are to address the major technological gaps in the offerings of green polymers and materials, and to enable participation of individual agricultural producers and feedstock processors in the new higher value applications for underutilized biomass and agricultural feedstocks.
To challenge the "status quo" of the chemical industry, we pick up clues from Nature to identify the path to new high performance Earth-friendly products. We make a strong emphasis on stewardship of the planet resources, sustainability and self-reliance. We strive to design our industrial products to be non-toxic and non-persistent in the environment.
