In December 2010, we signed an agreement with Waste Management to develop a commercial-scale process to produce a particular intermediate chemical from syngas sourced primarily from municipal solid waste.

Waste Management, the leading provider of waste management services in North America, has also invested in Genomatica, as part of our Series C-1 and Series D financings. 

Genomatica will develop technology and processes for turning syngas
made from municipal solid waste into higher-value chemicals.
