- ABOUT US
We are an agricultural biotechnology company selling seeds for producing renewable bioenergy feedstocks that can enable the large-scale replacement of petroleum and other fossil fuels. We use a combination of advanced plant breeding and biotechnology to develop new traits and improved energy crop varieties that we believe address the limitations of first-generation bioenergy feedstocks, increase biomass productivity, reduce crop inputs and improve cultivation on marginal land.
Our first large-scale commercial products are proprietary sweet sorghum hybrids that can be used to extend the operating season of Brazilian sugarcane-to-ethanol mills. Elsewhere, we also market improved hybrids of high-biomass sorghum and varieties of switchgrass that can be used for the production of second-generation biofuels and bio-based chemicals as well as utility-scale electric power generation.
