New Kids on the Block: 12 hot bio-based technologies worth watching (Parts 1 and 2)

Submitted by on June 25, 2012 – 9:46 amNo Comment

by Jim Lane (Biofuels Digest)  …Yet, even in an era where venture capital has been harder to come by (Why? See these 42 article links under the rubric, “The VC Model is Broken” ) — some great technologies have been getting out of the starting blocks.

Some of these companies are practically brand-spanking new – others have been flying under the radar for several years.

What do they have in common? First, they are smaller-scale, less capital-intensive ventures than some of their predecessors in the 2007-2010 venture boom era; they have deeper management benches in their early stage – including veterans of earlier industrial biotech rounds of innovation; they focus more on integrated biorefinery models with multiple products; and, most especially, on producing, or improving the market for, drop-in molecules that do not require infrastructure change or adoption of novel molecules by their intended customers.

In this two-part series, we will look at 12 companies that are making their mark.

Today (Part 1), we showcase Altranex, FarmMax, Kiverdi, Polnox, Saffron Eagle, and Sylvatex.  READ MORE
