Pyran uses renewable feedstocks from crop resources, such as corn cobs, to make 1,5-pentanediol (PDO). This essential material enhances the performance of everyday products, such as paints, coatings,
adhesives and more. The company’s renewable 5-carbon products replace expensive, petroleum-based chemicals, which are limited in supply. Pyran’s renewable-based, on-purpose production will enable customers to expand their businesses with better performing and more sustainable products.
