Overview

Harnessing the Power of Modern Biotechnology

Mascoma utilizes the tools of modern biotechnology to develop microorganisms (yeasts) that improve industrial production of fuels and chemicals.  We also incorporate our strong knowledge of industrial applications to create products that work in the real world, not just the laboratory.

Our products have the industrial robustness and fast kinetics necessary to be plugged-in to existing production facilities without the need for expensive equipment modifications.  We are also developing novel process solutions, which in combination with our yeast products, can be added to a production facility to create low incremental CapEx production of fuels and chemicals.

Our team of scientists in Lebanon, NH develops proprietary biotechnology tools and builds the molecular pathways into proven industrial hosts.  Our operations and demonstration facility in Rome, NY enables us to prove the scalability of our yeasts and process technology.
