One of GranBIo’s strategic directives consists of using its knowhow about biomass development and logistics that can be scaled up to commercial output as an integrated piece of enabling the green value chain approach. From its competitive cellulosic sugar platform GranBio enables almost all fermentable chemicals and biofuels at large and replicable scale.
We believe that cellulosic sugars can become the “new crude”, renewable, green and allied of food production with great potential of degraded land recovery in South America and Africa. In the US, in addition to agricultural residues, we invest on assessing the viability of retrofitting and recovering idle pulp&paper mills value chains that have been shut down for lack of competitiveness but can be repurposed as biorefineries to produce SAF and biochemicals.
GranBIo R&D strategy aims FTO (Freedom to Operate) and Freedom to License (FTL) of all its technologies with the business purpose of licensing and operating, with potential ownership or co-ownership.
GranBio concentrates its technology strategy in three fronts:
- Biomass: to provide biomass integrated solutions and feedstock security at scale that enables biofuels and biochemicals at competitive cost and NetZero emission in anywhere in the world
- Pioneer and disruptive R&D: To enable proprietary clean technologies using state of art applied science in synthetic biology, fermentation technology, process engineering and execution up to semi-commercial scale with FTO and FTL
- Technology Licensing: Develops complementary business alliances to optimize integrated technology solutions and readiness to execute industrial scale Net Zero biorefinerese with options of EPC TKLS and build and operate.
In the last 12 years GranBio has signed and executed more than 32 Joint Development Agreements of new bio-processes, renewable composites and materials and commercial alliances. Our more than 300 patents globally are a sign of our creative capacity and ability to cooperate to execute, but they are one piece, a very important piece, of our company. Our combined knowhow, longterm experience, team quality and resilient culture is the true basis of our technology asset.
