It also develops four-carbon chemicals for high-performance engineering plastics and spandex applications; and three-carbon chemicals that have applications in paints, coatings, diapers, and adhesives. In addition, the company develops crops platform, a proprietary system to produce polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB). It focuses on engineering switchgrass to produce PHB in the leaves for use in bioplastics, or as a precursor to industrial chemicals; to develop camelina for co-production of bioplastics along with vegetable oil, biodiesel fuel, and oleochemicals; and to maximize bioplastic production in the leaf tissue of sugarcane.
