Our innovative technology of bioproduction process
from non-food biomass resources

We aim to contribute to society through the bioproduction of environmentally friendly chemicals.

If phenol is produced from petroleum and disposed of (incinerated) after use, a large amount of CO2 is emitted.
In contrast, if the chemicals are produced by bioprocess from biomass as a feedstock, it is expected to reduce CO2 emissions by about 70% under normal temperature and pressure conditions. This is because green chemicals are made from plants, which fix CO2 from the atmosphere by photosynthesis. Even if they are incinerated after use, they do not affect the total amount of CO2 in the atmosphere, meaning they are totally carbon neutral.
The ability to reduce CO2 emissions through utlization of biomass feedstock is a common advantage of for various green chemicals. It also has the potential to reduce energy consumption in manufacturing, making it an environmentally friendly technology.

Green Chemicals(GCC) aims to contribute to a society by producing green chemicals at the world's highest level through a combination of the original technologies. These technologies include artificial metabolic pathway designs that enable the production of target substances from mixed sugars and oligosaccharides derived from various non-food biomass resources, construction of production strains based on these designs, the high production of target substances through the bioconversion processes using production strains, and condensation and purification(downstream technologies).
