Genomatica is focused on intermediate and basic chemicals. These chemicals form the core of the chemical industry, each with large, established markets. 

We develop comprehensive manufacturing processes that enable our partners to produce the exact same chemical that they or their customers use today, but from alternative feedstocks. By ‘exact same’, we mean that the chemicals produced by our processes meet the same specifications as those produced by conventional petroleum-based processes; that they can be used to make downstream products that have the same properties; and that those downstream products can be made with the same equipment and processes. By meeting that high standard, we believe that customers can more quickly adopt the chemicals produced with our processes. 

Our initial focus has been to develop and commercialize biobased processes for intermediate chemicals, and we are now leveraging our biotechnology platform to pursue in parallel the commercialization of processes for higher-volume basic chemicals, as well as additional intermediate chemicals.

Our biotechnology platform and intellectual property allow us to rapidly develop and deliver processes for numerous chemicals.
