Segetis uses proprietary technology to convert biomass to Levulinic Acid and its derivatives for use in wide market applications including plastics and home cleaning products.
However, in previously studied conversion methods, sugar molecules frequently degrade to form levulinic acid and formic acid--two products the previous methods couldn't readily transform into high-energy liquid fuels.

The same route yields levulinic acid from both these two compounds.
It should be noted that no single test covering all porphyric possibilities exists and that caution is due: If porphyria is suspected, testing for porphyrins might not even yield an answer because in the inducible porphyrias (acute intermittent porphyria, variegate porphyria, and hereditary coproporphyria), assays for porphyrin precursors ([partial derivative]-amino levulinic acid and porphobilinogen) are by far more helpful.
