Sophisticated plastics from simple sugars.
Valerian Materials will lead the way in renewable, degradable, and recyclable polymers. The biomass derived materials have applications as resilient foams and elastomers as well as tough plastics and thermosets. The principal technology relies on efficient and economical fermentation of sugar to give small molecules that can be catalytically converted to polymers in high yields at low temperatures with controlled molar mass. The versatility of the polymer platform is a key aspect and allows for broad penetration in a wide variety of industries.
Our technology is centered around the efficient conversion of biomass through metabolic engineering to give sustainable monomers that can be transformed into high value, environmentally friendly products.
The product portfolio using Valerian Materials technology is wide ranging, and the materials produced can be utilized in a variety of application areas.
