Virdia Raises Funds For Cellulosic Sugars
Virdia, formerly HCL Cleantech, has raised new financing and secured low-interest loans and a loan guarantee from the state of Mississippi. In exchange for an agreement to build cellulose-derived-sugar manufacturing operations in Mississippi, it secured $75 million in low-interest loans and up to $155 million in tax incentives from the Mississippi Development Authority. The firm also raised $20 million in new financing from Khosla Ventures, Burrill & Co., and Tamar Ventures and $10 million in debt financing from Triple Point Capital.
