A TRAILBLAZING CONDUIT FOR
LOW-CARBON FUELS PRODUCTION AND REFINERY PROCESS INNOVATIONS
What is Valent?
What do we do?
Valent is an industrial technology development company focused emerging renewable fuels and refining process innovations. Valent consists of seasoned liquid fuels entrepreneurs, long-term investors and senior oil & gas industry stakeholders. We’re set up as a hybrid business model of active hands-on development together with (co-)investment capability to attract strategic partners to enable efficient scaling of capital-intense technological innovations in oil & gas and renewable fuels.
We are scaling up technologies that reduce the energy and carbon intensity of fuels production and enhance low-carbon fuels’ profitability. Our approach is to foster a cooperative, risk-averse and tangible commercialization path for an integrated portfolio of emerging fuels-related technology innovations. Valent’s unique ability to launch commercial-scale technology demonstrations within its industry collaborators accelerates build-out timelines, lowers capital costs and harnesses operations expertise.
Valent’s emerging technologies reduce fuels manufacturing’s energy consumption and its associated carbon intensity. Our initial technology areas include renewable jet/diesel fuel, hydrogen distribution, fuel desulphurization and related enabling process technologies. Our growing portfolio includes the following technologies:
OUR GROWING PORTFOLIO INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING TECHNOLOGIES
Breakthrough crude oil desulphurization decreases fuel carbon intensity by up to 50% and reducing hydrogen requirements in processing. Sulphur remains a critical issue in the global biodiesel, marine fuels and Canadian bitumen industries.
A renewable diesel and jet fuel delivers a 90% carbon intensity emissions reduction. FORGE forecasts a 25% improvement in margin on both price and cost and can be the low-cost provider in a mandated, high-growth global industry.
Small-scale distributed hydrogen production for transportation and biogas upgrading. The Nu:ionic hydrogen solution allows hydrogen to be produced at potentially half the cost of delivered hydrogen.
Energy efficient light olefin and paraffin purification process. Imtex’s membrane technology delivers +30% reductions in the energy and capex to incumbent separation processes and reduces wasteful flaring practices.
Valent is led by experienced entrepreneurs Tim Haig and Karlis Vasarais who have built significant expertise in fuels science, industrial process optimization, early-stage financing and technology scale-up.
The core Valent team has raised over $250 million for six companies, leading to the commercialization of numerous R&D-stage innovations in renewable energy and clean technologies in Canada, including BIOX (World Energy), Mara Renewables, GreenMantra Technologies, and others.
