Venture Chemicals, Inc

Belkins
VENTURE CHEMICALS, INC. was formed in November 1977 for the purpose of commercializing some basic processing technology involving cellulose and lignite derivatives. Initial marketing was directed toward the oil and gas industry where oil and water dispersible colloidal materials are used. Since that time, the company has grown from year to year and today we sell to a variety of industries. Venture Chemicals, Inc. is a highly diversified specialty chemical manufacturing company serving many markets. But as diverse as these product lines are, all have a common thread, our ongoing search for new and improved ideas, both in products and technology.

Synbio could be getting a lot of interest as investors look to alternatives — but there are other non-oil and gas energy sources to follow as well, including hydrogen. One of these new solutions is cre...
