General Biomass Company uses advanced biotechnology to develop custom biomass deconstruction enzymes. Each nonfood biomass feedstock is different: old newspapers require different enzymes than sugar cane bagasse or nut hulls or coffee grounds or beetle-killed pine. We use a deep knowledge of biomass structure and sophisticated genomics tools to find the right enzymes for each feedstock, and produce them efficiently for R&D, pilot plant and commercial scale processing.


We can help you become more sustainable. We offer consulting, custom enzyme development, and an enzyme scaleup path to pilot and commercial production that fits your feedstock. Please contact us with your needs.
