Compare: » details
Traded in other countries:3A0.Germany,
Amyris Inc was incorporated in California on July 17, 2003 and reincorporated in Delaware on June 10, 2010. The Company is a renewable products company engaged in providing sustainable alternatives to petroleum-sourced products. It developed microbial engineering and screening technologies that modify the way microorganisms process sugars. The Company is engaged in in developing various products to address five identified markets: cosmetics, flavors and fragrances, performance materials, lubricants and transportation fuels. The Company is using its proprietary synthetic biology platform to design microbes, mainly yeast, and use them as living factories in established fermentation processes to convert plant-sourced sugars into renewable hydrocarbons. The Company is developing, and, in some cases, already commercializing, products from these hydrocarbons in several target markets, including cosmetics, lubricants, flavors and fragrances, performance materials, and transportation fuels. It calls these No Compromise products because it designs them to perform comparably to currently available products. The Company's first commercialization efforts have been focused on a renewable hydrocarbon molecule called farnesene Biofene, which forms the basis for various products varying from specialty chemical applications to transportation fuels, such as diesel. In addition, the Company has entered into various contract manufacturing agreements to support commercial production. The Company has established two main operating subsidiaries, Amyris Brasil Ltda. for production in Brazil, and Amyris Fuels, LLC. As of January 31, 2014, the Company had 247 issued U.S. and foreign patents and 327 pending U.S. and foreign patent applications that are owned by or licensed to it. The Company is subject to a various federal, state, local and international laws, regulations and permit requirements governing the use, generation, manufacture, transportation, storage, handling and disposal of these materials in the United States, Brazil and other countries where it operates.
