Genomatica is a widely-recognized technology leader for the chemical industry. Using biotechnology, it delivers new manufacturing processes that enable its licensee partners to produce the world's most widely-used chemicals a 'better way', from renewable feedstocks, with better economics and greater sustainability than petroleum-based processes.
Genomatica's first process, for BDO, is now commercial. Genomatica's BDO process was used to make 5 million pounds of BDO in late 2012, and has been licensed by both BASF and Novamont. Multiple companies, including Toray, Lanxess and Far Eastern New Century, have confirmed that BDO produced using Genomatica's process can be used the exact same way for downstream products as petro-chemicals, accelerating adoption. Genomatica is also developing processes for other high-volume chemicals: the next is for butadiene, with Versalis as partner.
Genomatica's recognition includes the Wall Street Journal Technology Innovation award, ICIS Top 40 'Ones to Watch', the EPA Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award, and being voted #1 Hottest two years in a row by Biofuels Digest.
