What does the Company do?

Amyris is an integrated renewable products company that is enabling the world’s leading brands to achieve sustainable growth. Amyris applies its innovative bioscience solutions to convert plant sugars into hydrocarbon molecules, specialty ingredients and consumer products. The company is delivering its No Compromise® products in focused markets, including specialty and performance chemicals, fragrance ingredients, and cosmetic emollients. We genetically modify microorganisms, primarily yeast, and use them as living factories in established fermentation processes to convert plant-sourced sugars into potentially thousands of target molecules.

What products does the Company sell?

Amyris’s first commercialization efforts were focused on a molecule called farnesene, which forms the basis for a wide range of products varying from specialty chemical applications such as cosmetics, perfumes and food ingredients, industrial lubricants, solvents and polymers, to transportation fuels such as diesel and jet fuels. We call these No Compromise® products because we design them to perform comparably to or better than currently available products with the advantage of more reliable supply.
