At Comet, we have a bold vision for the future of ingredients - a vision in which a farm’s entire harvest can be utilized to make high-quality ingredients. We’ve assembled a world class team to develop the technology to convert agricultural residues into high-quality, sustainable ingredients.
Optimizing the Agricultural System
Our ingredient system integrates seamlessly with traditional agricultural practices, greatly improving the economics of farming. Comet’s high quality, sustainable ingredients deliver value to farmers and an increasing array of industries, and their customers worldwide.
Comet’s process closes the loop in the food system by providing farmers the opportunity to utilize agricultural residues, improving the economics and stewardship of farming.
Our proprietary, proven technology and novel engineering provide high quality products and economics at scale. Our process allows for the conversion of agricultural residues, and forest products, into high purity glucose syrups, including non-GMO Dextrose.
Comet’s ingredients are made for the food and beverage, animal nutrition and biomaterials markets.
Our ingredients are consistently of the highest grade and purity, sustainable and non-GMO.
Our high purity Dextrose has high functionality and will be used by food manufacturers as a sustainable food ingredient. Our Dextrose is the highest grade and product purity, meeting 95DE specifications. It is also sustainably produced and non-GMO because it is made from non-GMO Wheat Straw and will allow farmers to utilize their entire harvest. And unlike ingredients made from food, our Dextrose will be consistently priced because our raw materials are residues and not subject to commodity price swings.
Comet’s Hemicellulose Extract (HCE), a liquid polysaccharide extract syrup, can play an important part of a compound animal feed solution. With nutritive qualities similar to molasses, enhanced pelleting and nutrient carrier properties, Comet’s HCE can contribute to optimal performance in swine, ruminants and poultry applications.
Comet’s Lignin is an important binding ingredient with applications in pelletized animal feed, energy pellets/briquettes and industrial and construction adhesives. Comet’s Lignin has shown enhanced pelleting properties and can be used in dispersant and adhesive applications.
