Glycos Biotechnologies, Inc. ("GlycosBio") is an international biochemical company commercializing sustainable chemicals made from renewable feedstocks. Our molecules for the synthetic rubber industry are drop-in replacement chemicals that integrate seamlessly into existing petrochemical supply chains and systems offering economic performance and cost benefits greater than those available from conventional petrochemical processes.
GlycosBio’s technology platform upgrades non-food and waste feedstocks into high value specialty and intermediate chemicals. Renewable carbon sources such as waste fatty acids, crude glycerin and non-food sugar streams represent low-value, carbon-rich starting materials that are widely available today. When compared to competing conventional sugar fermentations, our approach is more efficient with higher total process yields that translate into superior financial performance. GlycosBio’s multi-feedstock, multi-chemical strategy enhances production flexibility, enabling a higher level of agility in adapting to changing market conditions.
We have a first-to-market advantage with our Southeast Asian commercial operations that will commence in 2014, strategically placing GlycosBio at the gateway to the emerging synthetic rubber market. GlycosBio will produce Bio-SIM™ (Bio-based Synthetic Isoprene Monomer), a specialty chemical that is in short supply globally with cost and yield advantages over petroleum based Isoprene and Isoprene from sugar based feedstocks.
GlycosBio’s technology platform can produce sustainable chemicals that offer a more stable economical solution to traditional petrochemical processes while greatly reducing the carbon footprint.
