Bio-Solutions to Better our World

We began our work with the belief that we could better our world through industrial biotechnology. In 1995, we designed and implemented an advanced ethanol recovery facility at the MillerCoors Brewery in Golden, Colorado. Today, we own and operate the facility, which transformed a waste remediation problem into a profit center.

We have become a leader in developing and commercializing industrial biotechnology facilities for the conversion of biomass to fuels, products, and chemicals. We understand the industrial biotechnology industry and the needs of both owners and developers.
