Levulinic acid can help decarbonize the economy


  • GFBiochemicals' technology, producing levulinic acid directly from biomass, offers a solution to 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.
  • Levulinic acid is an important biobased building block for a decarbonized world. It can be converted into versatile chemical intermediates which can replace fossil-based chemicals and help reduce the carbon footprint of consumer products. These derivatives based on levulinic acid are utilized in resins, coatings, food and flavor additives, pharmaceuticals and polymers.

GFBiochemicals is working with its customers who consume levulinic acid and its derivatives, to calculate the carbon impact and environmental benefits of products. Please get in touch for any further information.
