Amyris is building an integrated renewable products company. Founded in 2003 and based in Emeryville, CA, Amyris is using breakthrough science and an innovative business model to address some of our planet’s most daunting problems.
We first developed our technology under a non-profit initiative to provide a reliable and affordable source of artemisinin, a highly effective anti-malarial therapeutic. We are now applying our industrial synthetic biology platform to provide alternatives to a broad range of petroleum-sourced products. No Compromise® renewable fuels and chemicals are being designed to perform comparably to, or better than, the products they will replace.
Amyris is establishing the partnerships and capabilities needed to bring our products to market as early as 2011, and to distribute these products directly to customers. Amyris subsidiaries include Amyris Brasil S.A., a majority-owned Brasilian company through which we conduct our Brasilian operations for the manufacture and trade of our products, and Amyris Fuels, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary through which we are building our U.S. fuels distribution capabilities
