Tradition of technology

Created by A Leader In Biotechnology

We’ve spent the last decade developing ways to make the world’s most widely used ingredients a better way, using renewable feedstocks and more sustainable approaches

Genomatica has been leading the transition to better materials for 20 years

We develop biobased process technologies that enable a better way to produce widely-used chemicals, from alternative feedstocks, with better economics, sustainability and performance.

Geno has commercialized processes for the chemical butanediol (for biodegradable plastics and apparel) and for butylene glycol (cosmetics and personal care); and is working on bio-nylon.
