Transforming non-food biofeedstocks such as algae biomass and agricultural waste into biobased chemicals.

Gen3Bio™ is a research and development company that is working to introduce new biobased specialty chemicals and polymers that do not rely on plant sugars used for human consumption. The benefits of not using these plant sugars include a major energy reduction and a diversion from the food chain. Feedstocks include algae biomass and agricultural and forestry waste including rice hull and sawdust. These renewable feedstocks provide a low carbon footprint, are available in large quantities and have a low and stable feedstock cost.

What We Do

 

  • Gen3Bio™ is a research & development company that plans on introducing to market biobased specialty chemicals and biopolymers
  • The Company is developing a new breakthrough technology to transform biomass into specialty chemicals and polymers without needing to use plant sugars used for human consumption
  • The benefit of not using plant sugars used for human consumption is to prevent any reduction in the food supply for feeding the growing global population
  • The Company believes that its competitive advantage will lie in its proprietary resin and biofuels formulation and processing that will allow manufacturing at a cost below traditional petroleum-based specialty chemicals and resins
  • Biomass of interest to Gen3Bio are non-food feedstocks
    • Algae biomass: non-GMO and not produced using plant sugars used for human consumption and are preferably produced using carbon captured from flue or water waste streams
      • low carbon footprint
      • renewable
      • accessible in large quantities
      • can have a low and stable feedstock cost
    • Agricultural and forestry waste, including sawdust, corn stover, corn stalk, and rice hull, are similarly attractive
      • low carbon footprint
      • renewable
      • available in very large quantities
      • low and stable feedstock cost

How We Do It

  • Gen3Bio™ intends to develop a strong portfolio of protected intellectual property while partnering with universities and industrial partners to speed up commercialization
  • We anticipate that our competitive advantage will lie in a proprietary technology we are currently seeking to develop which should allow formulation and processing at very attractive costs.

When validated our technologies should allow:

  • More efficiently extract chemicals from algae without denaturing carbohydrates and proteins
  • Reduce steps to produce specialty chemicals and polymers
  • Reduce capital requirements for commercial scale plants
  • Improve total synthetic yield
  • Reduce time to produce products
  • The Company’s unique development process should allow to
    • Work simultaneously on individual steps of multi-step processes to reduce development time
    • Work with the best labs and experts for each step rather than being bound by in-house capabilities
    • Prevent one outside entity from knowing all steps of a multi-step process to protect intellectual property
