  • Matyas Kosa, Fortress Advanced Bioproducts

Fortress advanced Bioproducts (FAB, FortressAB) was established to commercialize proprietary technology for the sustainable production of xylitol and other bioproducts, by Fortress Global Enterprises. FortressAB is commercializing its technology to convert hemicellulose sugars rinsed from wood chips into various biomaterials, with the primary product being xylitol, a low-calorie sweetener. Its process is expected to transform the Fortress dissolving pulp mill into a “biorefinery” and help to shift the chemical industry from its traditional dependence on fossil fuels to a sustainable future based on renewable materials. FortressAB’s patent-pending process was developed at its pilot plant and lab facilities in Vancouver, BC. The technology aims to reduce GHG emissions and water consumption associated with traditional xylitol production, while also delivering a lower-cost product.
