About our customer
Virent is in the business of replacing crude oil by applying clever chemistry to create the fuels and chemicals the world demands using a wide range of naturally-occurring, renewable resources.
Their patented technology features catalytic chemistry to convert plant-based sugars into a full range of products identical to those made from petroleum, including gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, and chemicals for plastics and fibers.
Virent's products are ‘drop in’ replacements that enable full utilization of existing logistics infrastructure without blending limitations.
The development of Virent’s BioForming® technology platform is supported through strategic investors and partners such as Coca-Cola, Cargill, Shell and Honda, as well as over 100 employees based in Madison, Wisconsin. The company has received several grants from the U.S. Departments of Commerce, Energy and Agriculture and has been recognized with many honors, including the World Economic Forum Technology Pioneer Award and the EPA’s Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award. Virent’s biogasoline is also being used by the Scuderia Ferrari Formula 1 racing team.
