Levulinic acid can help decarbonize the economy

GFBiochemicals technology to produce levulinic directly from biomass is our solution to the Climate Change challenge.

  • GFBiochemicals' Javelin technology, producing ketals and levulinate esters from levulinic acid, offers a solution to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. It can help facilitate a transition to low-carbon feedstock for a range of specialty chemicals, materials and fuels.
  • In December 2015 at the Paris Climate Change Conference COP21, world leaders agreed to binding rules to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This gave a clear signal that businesses must invest in the low-carbon transition.

The Javelin technology has a range of important biobased building blocks for a decarbonized world. These building blocks serve as ingredients in consumer products, industrial solvents and various polymer applications which can replace fossil-based chemicals and help reduce the carbon footprint of everyday products.

Segetis is working with its customers who consume ketals and levulinate esters, to calculate the carbon impact and environmental benefits of products. Please get in touch for any further information.
