Natural and renewable specialty chemicals
Pinova Holdings, Inc. is a global leader in natural and renewable specialty chemicals. Through our two operating companies, Pinova, Inc. and Renessenz LLC, we provide our customers with proven, high-quality products for a variety of niche markets. Headquartered in Brunswick, GA, we operate three manufacturing facilities located in the Southeastern United States.
Pinova Holdings was created in January 2010 when TorQuest Partners, a leading Canadian private equity fund manager and its co-investment partners, acquired Ashland Inc.’s refined wood rosin and natural wood terpenes business, formerly known as Hercules Specialty Resins. This business is now called Pinova, Inc.
In December 2010, Pinova Holdings grew through the acquisition of LyondellBasell Flavors & Fragrances, LLC. This business is now called Renessenz LLC. The combination of Pinova and Renessenz under the common ownership of Pinova Holdings has created one of the world’s largest specialty chemical businesses based on natural and renewable feedstocks.
Pinova Holdings is a rare example of a fully-proven, commercialized green chemistry business. Sustainability is the cornerstone of our business. Both Pinova and Renessenz use locally abundant, natural, renewable feedstocks, including by-products of the forestry, pulp and paper and agricultural processes, and convert them into high value products, making the most of nature’s resources.
In addition, our facilities are capable of co-generating electricity using our by-products to generate steam that powers our plants. This environmentally friendly energy allows us to reduce our consumption of non-renewable fuels such as diesel and natural gas.
