Industry expert, David Austgen, to discuss the newest fermentation technology and how clean label, upcycled ingredients benefit food production

BRYAN, TEXAS, USA, February 12, 2024 / --BioVeritas, LLC., a bio-based ingredients company pioneering a proprietary upcycling process, today announced that David Austgen, chief executive officer, will present at2024 ADI Forumon February 22, 2024 in Houston, Texas. Mr. Austgen will speak in Session Panel 5 at 3:20PM PST at Norris Conference Center.

Mr. Austgen will join fellow experts Steve Brown, president of Chemstations, and Uday Turaga, founder & chief executive officer of ADI, for a panel discussion focusing on innovative technologies and processes that bolster the growing movement towards sustainability and decarbonization.

“BioVeritas has created a game-changing product for the food ingredient market that is a step-change improvement from the petrochemical-based options currently available,” stated Mr. Austgen. “Our technology, which we call the BioVeritas Process, is a platform technology that can do far more than food. It enables us to play in many markets currently served by petrochemical-based short and medium-chain fatty acids. These carboxylic acids can be readily converted to other classes of organic chemicals including esters, aldehydes, trigyclerides, alcohols, amides, nitriles, diols, olefins and hydrocarbon fuels. This enables a commercialization roadmap that leads from high growth, high-value food ingredients to specialty chemicals and fuels – and in a way that’s far more sustainable than the petrochemical incumbents.”

BioVeritas is currently shipping samples for qualification at manufacturer plants. For more information on BioVeritas’ solutions and service details,
