Nuseed and GranBio team on R&D and commercialization into global energy cane markets

September 13, 2022 |

In Brazil, Nuseed and GranBio have entered into a long-term strategic alliance to accelerate R&D and commercialization into global energy cane markets. Nuseed acquired GranBio’s energy cane breeding and commercial assets, and R&D program aiming to fundamentally improve the output energy value through innovation in bioenergy cane.

This is an enormous opportunity, with ready now technology and is a fundamental step change in energy creation and renewable product generation from cane. The opportunity includes two exciting platforms:

Scalable, drop-in improvement in energy output with the existing ethanol + cogeneration bioelectricity cane industry in Brazil (and other markets), and

Expansion of energy cane as a reliable feedstock into emerging 2G process technology, which will make it possible to help decarbonize hydrocarbons for applications such as biochemicals and Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF).

Nuseed will accelerate breeding product development and broad scale commercial adoption into the existing ethanol + bioelectric cane industry in Brazil and other world markets.

GranBio will continue to invest in energy cane development through Nuseed and will be the exclusive licensor of energy cane feedstock into GranBio proprietary process applications in the lignocellulosic field, such as cellulosic sugars and lignin, 2G ethanol, biochemicals, SAF and renewable materials worldwide.

Nuseed and GranBio’s agreement will enable the biomass-to-fuel value chain to become a powerful solution to the challenge of securing renewable feedstock at large scale. Dedicated energy cane next generation clusters will also enable carbon neutral biorefineries to respond to global SAF demand and IATA 2050 goals.
