Welcome to the future of furan chemistry

AVA Biochem has developed, piloted and patented a fully water-based process for the conversion of industrial sugars into the 100% bio-based molecule 5-HMF. This platform chemical is ideally positioned to advantageously replace petroleum-sourced chemicals in various mass-market applications, due to its versatility, non-toxicity and bio-sourcing. Targeted applications include biopolymers (yarn, films, packaging), as well as resins and adhesives, where 5-HMF replaces highly toxic formaldehyde.
