General Biomass Company is a United States-based corporation developing engineered cellulase enzymes to convert non-food raw materials to glucose for production of cellulosic ethanol, renewable platform chemicals, bioplastics, and advanced biofuels. General Biomass technology enables production of a wide variety of enzymes for biorefineries and industrial biotech applications. We use advanced biotechnology to develop custom biomass deconstruction enzymes. Each nonfood biomass feedstock is different: old newspapers require different enzymes than sugar cane bagasse or nut hulls or coffee bean husks or beetle-killed pine. We use a deep knowledge of biomass structure and sophisticated genomics tools to find the right enzymes for each feedstock, and produce them efficiently for R&D, pilot plant and commercial scale processing.
