Engineering Yeast for Improved Fuels & Chemicals

Xylome uses newly developed yeast strains to transform hard-to-digest sugars into commercially viable, second-generation ethanol and biodiesel precursors and to synthesize a host of advanced biorenewable products. Xylome specializes in metabolic engineering of nonconventional yeast. Their scientists create platforms for the bioconversion of unconventional feedstocks. Xylome provides technology to produce higher value fuels, chemicals, biochemicals and enzymes, which increases the value and diversity of byproducts from fermentations while reducing operating costs.
