P2 Science has brought simple elegant green chemistry into the commercial mainstream. The company is a venture backed spinout from Yale University, co-founded by professor Paul Anastas, Director of the Center for Green Chemistry and Green Engineering at Yale. P2 uses patented oxidation technology to convert vegetable feedstocks into high value specialty chemicals used in cosmetics, personal care, fragrance and other consumer markets. P2 recently started up its first commercial scale manufacturing plant in Connecticut USA. P2 has unlocked the vast potential of air-based oxidation using a unique process intensification approach that minimizes environmental footprint, lowers cost and improves control. This enables simple vegetable feeds to be converted at a very low cost, to high performance renewable ingredients and intermediates used in consumer and industrial products. Investors include BASF, Elm Street Ventures, Connecticut Innovations and Xeraya.
P2 Science is manufacturing a range of renewable flavor & fragrance and cosmetics ingredients at the Connecticut plant. Some of these, like BioNonanal™ , are renewable versions of existing petrochemical products. Others are brand new to market products made possible by P2’s unique process capability. One such novel ingredient, Hydrofleur™ was introduced in June 2018 by P2’s marketing partner, Bedoukian Research at the World Perfumery Congress in Nice, France.
Neil Burns, CEO, described the P2 plant as running a process unlike any other. “We do oxidation, inspired by nature, run under the mildest imaginable conditions, gently cooled to below 40 Degrees Fahrenheit, with no applied pressure or heat and a tiny environmental footprint. It’s deceptively simple, but it’s never been done before. It opens up a whole new set of options for cost effective renewable products for many applications.”
P2 Science’s executive team includes Neil Burns, CEO, whose career spans 30 years in the surfactants and oleochemicals industries including time as CEO of Oxiteno USA and a Director of Pilot Chemical Company. Patrick Foley, P2’s Chief Science Officer is a co-founder of the company and the lead inventor on all the company’s patents. Joel Jones recently joined the company as Chief Commercial Officer after a 30-year career with Dow Chemical and leadership roles with two private equity backed chemical companies. Ed Ogle, P2’s Operations Manager, joined the company after a career in operations and project management at BYK and Cray Valley.
