The BioVeritas Process™ can repurpose a wide variety of waste biomass sources into valuable sustainable aviation fuel that meets the industry’s strict technical requirements. The process is feedstock flexible enabling the utilization of a wide range of low-to-no-cost waste streams. Use of such waste streams to produce SAF has the added benefit of reducing food and biomass wastes going to landfills and, consequently, the production of greenhouse emissions from landfills.    

Industry Problem

The aviation industry is a world leader in carbon emissions and more than 97% of these emissions come from aviation fuel. Innovative companies have found various pathways to producing SAF, but each have challenges, such as lack of process flexibility, lingering carbon emissions, and costly feedstocks.  

Use Case

Bio-based fuels have the potential to displace fossil-based fuels currently used in the aviation industry.  

Market Insights

2%

Worldwide, aviation accounts for 2% of all human-caused carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and 12% of all transportation CO2 emissions.

50%

The Sustainable Aviation Fuel Grand Challenge, announced in 2021, brings together multiple federal agencies for the purpose of expanding domestic consumption to 3 billion gallons in 2030 and 35 billion gallons in 2050 while achieving at least a 50% reduction in lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions.

Relevant Acids

The conversion of carboxylic acids to jet range alkanes is relatively straightforward and involves a two-step reaction process: (1) conversion of carboxylic acids to ketones, and (2) conversion of ketones to alkanes.  The technology has been proven at lab and small pilot scale.* Feedstock for jet fuel would primarily include valeric, caproic and heptanoic acid. The pathway to SAF from these feedstocks would produce C9 – C13 alkanes, which are in the jet fuel range.

Why BioVeritas

TM

Better for consumers. Better for manufacturers. Better for the planet.

 

At BioVeritas, we strive to make more than just incremental improvements to what already exists. We seek not to improve the status quo, but to displace it with more sustainable solutions. Our BioVeritas Process™ represents a true functional drop-in replacement for existing technology. Our team puts people – from customers to investors to fellow employees – first, always. With this at our core, we are quickly moving forward to make clean ingredients and bio-based chemicals mainstream by eliminating the tradeoffs inherent in the clean products available today.

 

By turning feedstocks of little to no value into products of high value, we’re not just changing the game – we’re changing the world.
