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 offering economic performance and cost benefits greater than those available from conventional petrochemical processes.
GlycosBio’s chemical 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 conventional sugar fermentations, our approach is more efficient with higher process yields that translate into superior financial performance.
GlycosBio’s fatty acid feedstock platform can integrate into existing agricultural and specialty chemical processes that traditionally use glucose (sugar). By integrating GlycosBio’s fatty acid feedstock platform with existing yeast or bacteria platforms, today’s industrial biotechnology production facilities can gain higher yields, diversify its feedstock strategy, and most importantly, lower cost compared to existing production processes.
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.
