We are developing cost-effective methods in collaboration with our partners to convert the complex cellulose and hemi-cellulose carbohydrates contained in lignocellulosic biomass into C5 and C6 sugars which can then be digested for further processing. Our Clostridium microbial strains efficiently utilise both C5 and C6 sugars, which provides a unique opportunity to use a wide range of feedstocks to access lower cost sugars.

Our partners that specialise in the processing and hydrolysis of lignocellulosic feedstocks benefit from our expertise in strain and process development to optimise conversion of the feedstocks to value-added products.

In addition to lignocellulosic feedstocks, our platform is also designed for sugar and starch feedstocks for deployment in suitable and economically viable markets.
