Amyris meets production milestone at farnesene plant in Brazil

According to the company, with all six fermentors running as planned and with its ongoing production rate, the plant in Brotas, São Paulo, has surpassed the 5 million L production mark. The production facility, located adjacent to the Paraiso sugarcane mill in Brotas, began commercial operations at the beginning of 2013 and had all six fermentors running in July to align with commercial volume needs. Amyris's farnesene is a renewable hydrocarbon molecule, addressing growing demand in a broad range of applications, from diesel and jet fuel to high-performance materials.
