Amyris Biotechnologies creates renewable products, focusing on fuels and chemicals. The company is developing renewable fuels that reduce lifecycle (GHG) emissions 80%. The fuel source is special in that it is compatible with current gasoline engines, and can be distributed with existing petroleum infrastructure.

Amyris is also developing semi-synthetic artemisinin, a key ingredient in first-line malaria treatments, in hopes of creating a complementary source of non-seasonal, high-quality, affordable artemisinin. This source would supplement the current botanical supply, offering millions of people infected with malaria the chance to gain consistent and reliable access to lower-cost, life-saving Artemisinin-based Combination Therapies (ACTs). Amyris produces environmentally friendly chemicals for a variety of consumer products and industrial applications currently dependent on petrochemical components.
