Organization Information

Swiss based AVA Biochem has developed, patented and piloted a hydro thermal processing technology for the conversion of industrial sugars into the 100% bio-based platform chemical 5-HMF, which is used to replace fossil feedstocks and derived chemicals, such as formaldehyde in resins, wood adhesives, yarns or bottles. Due to its green and healthy attributes, 5-HMF and its derivatives are also increasingly being used as a replacement of petroleum-based ingredients in the bio-based plastic, food, pharmaceutical and packaging business.
