Using Catalytic Chemistry to Reduce Our Carbon Footprint

Using patented catalytic chemistry, Virent converts soluble biomass-derived sugars into products identical to those made with petroleum, including gasoline, diesel, jet fuel and chemicals used for plastics and fibers. Virent’s BioForming® process provides a true biorefinery capable of producing multiple products from various feedstocks using heterogeneous catalysts common to the petroleum and catalyst industry. Virent’s products are drop-in equivalents to their petroleum counterparts, but with a significantly reduced carbon footprint.
