GlycosBio is a pioneer in molecular biology and microbial engineering, focused on scientifically developing microorganisms that make high-value biochemicals and biofuels for partner biorefineries. GlycosBio's microbial strains produce a variety of high margin biochemicals from a diverse set of feedstocks and co-product streams that are traditionally considered waste or low value. Convertible feedstocks include a wide range of cellulosics, thin stillage from ethanol, algae, biodiesel glycerin, and other renewable feedstocks that traditionally have a very low financial value. Our technology also has a much lower carbon footprint than traditional chemical manufacturing (like algae, many of our processes absorb CO2).

GlycosBio partners with chemical companies, biorefineries, biofuels producers and biorefinery manufacturing organizations to convert co-product streams that are readily available in the existing fuels and chemical infrastructure.

Partner biorefineries can increase product value from 10x-15x by turning these co-product or waste streams into intermediate chemicals.
