Message from the President

We are already working on a first commercial plant project: IBN-One, a Joint-Venture with Cristal Union, France’s second largest sugar producer. It intends to bring into operation a 50,000 tonnes per year plant by 2018. Several other production plants projects are the subject of serious discussions on three continents. I am confident of and committed to signing agreements with top-ranking industrial partners in 2016.

Why use this process?

Because isobutene, one of the major building blocks of the petrochemicals industry, represents a market worth $25 billion and may one day address an additional market worth $400 billion.

In what respect was this a scientific challenge?

Because micro-organisms do not naturally produce isobutene. And it’s easy to understand why.

Since 2008, Global Bioenergies has revolutionized the hydrocarbon industry by converting bio-sourced feedstocks into plastics, rubbers and fuels.
