Jonathan discovered a new way to make Xylitol at Purdue University using electricity.
Purdue patented Jonathan’s work. After working together in the food industry, Paul and Jonathan decided bring it to market.
Jonathan and Paul decided to join forces to bring the world back to its natural roots. DFI was created in 2005.
Leveraging the expertise at Electrosynthesis, Jonathan and Paul explored using electrochemistry for other natural sweeteners. This led to DFI’s production of Erythritol.
Construction of DFI’s first industrial scale pilot plant for the production of erythritol.
Full scale commercial height cell continuous testing at the demonstration facility has exceeded all expectations (Erythritol).
Site selection process finalized and announcement on site planned for April 2016.
Significant scale Erythritol plant in final core process design with the goal of start Q4 2017.
