You have a choice now. You can choose packaging and
products made without oil. Most of those renewable products and packaging are
made today from corn sugar or food starch, a first step toward getting us off of oil.
General Biomass takes the next step - enabling
recyclable or biodegradable products and packaging made from nonfood biomass.
How? By developing enzymes to convert nonfood biomass
and waste paper to biosugars, a clean, renewable, and universal source of
hydrocarbons to make bioplastics which replace plastics made from oil. Recycling
these plastics actually removes CO2 from the atmosphere and sequesters
it naturally in structures such as building materials and playground
General Biomass Company develops advanced enzymes to
make bioplastics and renewable chemicals from nonfood biomass and municipal
solid waste. Our engineered cellulase and hemicellulase enzymes make
biosugars - glucose and xylose - from cheap nonfood biomass.
Glucose is the universal substrate for all industrial fermentations,
allowing production of a wide variety of renewable chemicals and
bioplastics. By providing cheap glucose from nonfood biomass, our enzymes
enable production of sustainable bioplastics without the use of grain, starch,
palm oil and other food-based sources.
Now that's truly sustainable.
Let Us Help You Become
Our world is changing rapidly. Sustainability is no longer an
option. In the 21st century it is a necessity for companies and brands which
hope to serve billions of customers who know their planet and their future are
in trouble, and want to do something about it.
Plastics are part of almost everything we buy and the package
it comes in. Today those products and that packaging are made from oil, with all
the attendant financial and environmental costs. Most sustainable packaging
today comes from starch, obtained from corn or other food grains. As world grain
supplies feel more stress, consumers looking for sustainable products and
packaging have few alternatives.
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 bean husks 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.
