On Monday, we reported in Where is Your Money Going? The Mess at USASpending.Gov that according to the US government’s transparency in government spending website, bioeconomy pioneer Genomatica has received more than $280 million in federal grants and contracts since 2008. We added: Surprising we would imagine to the staff at Genomatica, too, since it’s hogwash of the […]
The Rise of Organic Manufacturing: Ginkgo, Amyris, Genomatica’s circle of innovation is a trend to watch
The factories of old — a technological wave that swept in with the Industrial Revolution — these were inorganic manufacturing centers, and they are now the wave of the past. They used a suite of lifeless fossil ingredients and mechanical, lifeless manufacturing techniques. They might have been made fast through computers, sensors and robotics, but […]
From Italy word has arrived that Novamont have opened the world’s first commercial-scale facility for the bio-based production of bio-based 1,4-butanediol, in Bottrighe (Adria), North East Italy. Having licensed Genomatica’s technology, the Novamont Mater-Biotech plant will produce 30,000 tons of BDO per year from renewable sugars. First off, let’s note that the capacity is 70% […]
Genomatica is a widely-recognized technology leader for the chemical industry, and for four years running has been the #1-ranked company in the Hot 30. It delivers new manufacturing processes that enable its partners to produce the world’s most widely-used chemicals from alternative feedstocks, with better economics and greater sustainability than petroleum-based processes.
As part of March Madness 2016, Genomatica’s Jeff Lievense presented this master class on Fermentation 2.0 — alongside Mark Warner’s super presentation which you can see here While you’re at it, you can access our 8-Slide Guide to Genomatica here. And, you can access the recorded webinar here.
In California, Genomatica has announced an expansion of its Bioengineering Solutions business across the chemical, health, wellness, and food and beverage industries. The new offerings will extend to ten projects that span the product development lifecycle, are spread out internationally, involve both bacteria and yeast, for both large and small companies.In addition, the company added […]
Breakthrough accomplishments continue progress toward commercial plants In Italy, Versalis and Genomatica have successfully advanced to pilot-scale production of bio-butadiene (bio-BDE) from fully renewable feedstock. Versalis used this bio-BDE to make bio-rubber, specifically, bio-polybutadiene (bio-BR). “These accomplishments represent a remarkable milestone for the rubber industry,” the companies said in a statement, “by enabling an improved […]
1. Harnessing the power of biology to unlock new alternative feedstocks. Genomatica is a widely-recognized technology leader for the chemical industry, and for four years running has been the #1-ranked company in the Hot 30. It delivers new manufacturing processes that enable its partners to produce the world’s most widely-used chemicals from alternative feedstocks, with better […]
In Brazil, Genomatica and Braskem announced they have been successfully producing butadiene at lab scale since June 2015, using their direct, bio-based process. The companies are jointly developing a commercial process for the on-purpose production of butadiene made from renewable feedstocks, as announced in December 2013. 1) Direct, continuous production: The program team has successfully […]
Butadiene is beginning to emerge from the Braskem Genomatica collaboration. But could it be that the real significance lies not in progress with butadiene, but in Big Data itself, the harnessing of complex mathematics to make products that are possible, but not currently produced, in Nature. News has arrived from California and Brazil that Braskem and Genomatica […]
