To be the World Leader in ABE Fermentation as a Global Sustainable Industry
Our mission is to re-establish, at a global scale, the Acetone-Butanol-Ethanol (ABE) fermentation process, utilising local low value materials to produce low-carbon, high-value, sustainable products. We will continue to innovate, enhance and optimise our patented technology in terms of science, engineering and manufacturing excellence, to develop world leading biorefineries in key locations, that will grow local economies and shareholder value. Our commitment is to work with strategic partners to create an environmentally and socio-economically viable industry that displaces fossil fuel derivatives.

sets up the first centre for sustainable biofuel development in the UK – The Biofuel Research Centre – at Edinburgh Napier University.
Proof of Concept
research commences on Scottish Government funded programme to investigate ABE fermentation of whisky production residues
Signed a partnership agreement with Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant (BBEPP) in Ghent to scale up the technology following a £1.2 million deal with private investors and grant funding from the UK government’s Department of Energy and Climate Change
First large scale butanol samples revealed – successfully scaled up process technology over 1,000-fold, taking it from the original lab-scale to viable commercial pilot-scale
Over £4 million in funding since company launch
