The Company is an industrial biotechnology company producing sustainable chemicals. Its proprietary technology platform combines industrial biotechnology and chemical catalysis to convert renewable feedstocks into sustainable chemicals that are cost-competitive replacements for petroleum-derived chemicals, which are used in various everyday products including plastics, resins, food additives and personal care products. The Company currently sells its first product, bio-succinic acid, to customers in various chemical markets. The Company currently produces its bio-succinic acid in a large-scale demonstration facility using a 350,000 liter fermenter in Pomacle, France. It has produced approximately 2.35 million pounds, or 1,065 metric tons, of bio-succinic acid at this facility as of December 31, 2013. The Company is developing three distinct technologies: the production of succinic acid through fermentation; the conversion of succinic acid into 1,4 BDO, THF and GBL by catalyst assisted hydrogenation reaction; and the production of adipic acid and other C6 chemical intermediates through fermentation and purification. The Company is subject to various international, federal, state and local regulatory laws, rules and regulations.
