Company Profile

Virent is a recognized leader in advanced biofuel technologies, catalytically transforming plant sugars into premium quality gasoline, jet fuel, diesel and chemicals. Virent’s patented BioForming® platform generates fuels that match petroleum products in composition and performance and face no hurdles to full market penetration. They can be replacements for, or used at high blends with, petroleum fuels in today’s engines, fuels pumps, and pipelines. Virent’s fast, scalable, and energy efficient process provides more net energy at a lower cost than traditional biofuel production processes.

Virent was acquired by Tesoro Corp. in 2016, a publicly traded oil refiner based in San Antonio, Texas.
