Use Case

Valeric acids, and their derivatives, have wide applicability ranging from aviation and refrigerant lubrication to cosmetics, and flavor & fragrance. 

Industry Problem

Valeric acids are largely derived from petrochemicals. 

The desire for natural inputs for consumer-facing products, plus aggressive sustainability goals across many industrial sectors, is creating a growing need for natural solutions.  

BioVeritas Solution

BioVeritas’s innovative process of upcycling excess biomass via fermentation produces clean-label Valeric acids.

  • What does BioVeritas do?
    BioVeritas upcycles excess biomass, like broken pasta, into clean label ingredients for the food preservation, animal & human nutrition, and industrial materials markets.
  • What does “Mother Nature Approved” mean?
    BioVeritas pioneered a proprietary fermentation process, based on anaerobic digestion, that most closely matches what happens in nature, such as in a cow’s digestive system. In fact, our process has one big advantage over Mother Nature: our process does not release methane, a key greenhouse gas.
  • Who are BioVeritas’ financial backers?
    BioVeritas was acquired in 2021 by Ara Partners, a private equity firm focused on decarbonizing the global economy. With their financial backing, we are investing aggressively in scale up for our new plant, marketing, business development, and organizational capacity (systems/processes/tools, e.g. Microsoft Dynamics)
  • Where is BioVeritas in terms of commercialization?
    We have a market development unit operating in Bryan, Texas and we are actively planning for a commercial scale facility, with commissioning expected in 2025.
