About Amyris

Amyris delivers high-performance alternatives to petroleum-based products across a wide range of consumer and industry segments. Our products offer customers a way to reduce environmental impact with No Compromise® in performance or availability.

We developed innovative microbial engineering and screening technologies that modify the way microorganisms process sugars. Amyris is using its proprietary synthetic biology platform to design microbes, primarily yeast, and use them as living factories in established fermentation processes to convert plant-sourced sugars into renewable hydrocarbons.

Our story began nearly a decade ago, when Amyris was founded with a vision of making a positive impact on the world through science. We first used our proprietary process to convert plant-sugars into an alternative, lower cost, stable supply of anti-malarial therapeutics. Thanks to our breakthrough technology, these life saving drugs are more readily accessible.

Today, our business strategy is focused on the production on Biofene®, Amyris’s brand of renewable farnesene, a long-chain branched hydrocarbon molecule, manufactured using Amyris-engineered microbes in fermentation of plant sugar feedstock.

Using Biofene as a first commercial building block molecule, we are developing a wide range of renewable specialty chemicals and fuels products, such as diesel and jet fuels, lubricants, polymers and plastic additives, flavors and fragrances, home and personal care, and cosmetics ingredients.
