Amyris Barra Bonita fermentation plant begins industrial production

June 26, 2022 |

In California, Amyris, Inc. successfully started fermentation at its new precision fermentation plant in Barra Bonita, Brazil. The greenfield site at Barra Bonita establishes Amyris as the leading manufacturer of highly engineered organisms at industrial scale.

The plant consists of five precision fermentation “mini-factories” capable of concurrently producing all 13 of Amyris’ molecules currently in the market as well as future bio-fermented products. The plant’s capacity is fully committed through the end of 2023 with the production of natural vanillin, sugarcane-based Reb M, squalane, squalene, hemisqualene and patchouli along with other molecules. The plant will allow Amyris to more efficiently meet demand from its ingredient customers after several years of operating under third-party capacity supply constraints.
